Title

"Auxiliary alternations in French passé surcomposé"

Description

ABSTRACT.
It is well-known that French exhibits an alternation between 'have' and 'be' in constructions of the form ‘auxiliary + past participle’ for expressing past tense. Some verbs (transitive verbs and some intransitive verbs) use auxiliary "avoir" ‘have’, while others verbs (some intransitive verbs and reflexive verbs) use auxiliary "être" ‘be’.

In this talk, we will examine some additional auxiliary alternations in French passé surcomposé, a rarely used French tense which occurs with two auxiliaries, and remark on some of their consequences for the analysis of the reflexive clitic "se" in French.

Refreshments will be served.
