|Title:||Parts of Speech in Tagalog||Authors:||Gil, D.||Issue Date:||13-Dec-2016||Citation:||Gil, D. (2016-12-13). Parts of Speech in Tagalog. Parts of Speech in Tagalog. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Distinctions are made between Tagalog, English, & other European languages in basic word order, inventory of grammatical relations, & syntactic categories. Tagalog possesses one open syntactic category with no distinction between the categories of noun, verb, adjective, preposition, or sentence & does not distinguish between lexical categories & their phrasal projections. Nearly all words & word strings exhibit similar syntactic behavior in relation to distributional privileges & participation in the relations of government, binding, & agreement; thus, any word can appear anywhere in a sentence. The morphological & semantic consequences of this are addressed. Syntactic categories are independent of morphological word classes, & the latter are partly arbitrary & partly motivated by semantic factors. Syntactic categories are independent of semantic ones. K. Burch.||Source Title:||Parts of Speech in Tagalog||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/132851||ISBN:||1881044122|
