Completed projects

Project:
Lend me your ears: the grammar of (un)transferable possession 01.03.2013 to 01.03.2017
General project description

Project summary:
Possession is a fundamental concept of human culture. All cultures have a concept of
ownership. The boundary between what is yours and what is mine may differ from culture to
culture, and from individual to individual. Nevertheless, some things can only be yours or
mine, for instance body parts or family members.
Human language reflects this basic distinction between things that are intrinsically yours and
things that are not. Most human languages make a grammatical distinction between
transferable entities such as your car, my watch, or Mary’s money and untransferable
entities such as body parts (my hand, your leg, her finger) and kinship relations (my sister,
John’s grandfather). The occurrence of this basic distinction in many genetically unrelated
languages suggests that it is an inherent part of the human language faculty.
The main aim of this project is to investigate the various ways in which language categorizes
possession, how these are morphosyntactically encoded across and within languages, and
how this distinction should be represented in a model of the language faculty.
