    Ezafe, PP and the Nature of Nominalization 

    Richard Larson (Stony Brook University) (and Vida Samian, CalState Fresno) 

     

    In the talk we argue that the English VP/NP structures in (1a-d) have exact counterparts in the i(ranian)Persian PP/NP structures in (2a-d), where P1-Pare three different classes of iPersian Ps and where -Ez is the so-called "Ezafe" morpheme.
