"AROSYN - Aromanian Syntax: Reflexive Clitics in Aromanian"

 

Aromanian Syntax (AROSYN) is a European Commission funded project [Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions] that aims to document and study the properties of the reflexive clitic SE across a number of related structures in Aromanian, an oral, endangered and understudied Eastern Romance variety spoken throughout the Balkans. The project involves extensive fieldwork in loco in Epirus, North-Western Greece (4 locations). Project goals include: (a) the study of the morpho-syntactic properties of SE-structures across closely related varieties (micro-variation), but also among (standard) Romance languages (including Daco-Romance); (b) the study of the role of language contact in the formation of hybrid grammars (in this case, Aromanian and Greek); (c) the study of the nature and structure of variation in non-standard oral linguistic varieties; (d) the study of the properties of SE across structures and languages. Ultimately, achievement of these goals will elucidate the nature of argument structure alternations and of Grammar more generally.

 

This project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 657663.
