"Noun Phrases and Language Variation" By Dr. L. Julie Jiang (Harvard University, College Follow)

Nouns in Chinese-type languages behave differently in several salient ways from those in Germanic and Romance languages. To name a few: Chinese-type nouns do not have obligatory plural markers (–s/es) or articles (a/an/the), but they do have a unique, systematic inventory of classifiers, or words that obligatorily appear with nouns and numbers. Though nouns in Chinese-type languages share a great deal in common with each other, we also observe key differences among these languages with respect to their nominals. This talk explores these differences and proposes a new theory to accommodate data from both Chinese-type languages and languages with obligatory articles/plural marking.
