Korean reformulative multiple accusative construction as vacuous reformulative apposition

This paper explores one type of Multiple Accusative Construction (MAC), namely “reformulative” MACs (previously referred to as “topic-type” MACs) (e.g., Mimi-ka kwail-ul sakwa-lul cohaha-n-ta), where the second accusative-marked NP (e.g., sakwa-lul) specifies a value for the variable introduced by the first accusative-marked NP (e.g., kwail-ul). In doing so, the paper first reviews two previous analyses: one proposed by Chae and Kim (2008) and the other by Kim (2006, 2010). Chae and Kim try to account for the formation of (reformulative-)MACs by appealing to a construction-specific rule (Recursive Rule) in the HPSG framework. Kim, on the other hand, takes the construction to be derived via PF-ellipsis in an underlying sentential structure. The previous analyses, however, encounter some empirical problems. This paper, therefore, offers an alternative perspective by treating reformulative MACs on a par with vacuous reformulative appositions in English (e.g., Kim likes fruit ─ likes apples) which are analyzed as involving coordinative syntax according to Griffiths (2015). Specifically, the paper proposes to analyze reformulative MACs as involving a coordinate VP structure created by overt across-the-board movement of a main verb. This coordination analysis, without positing any construction-specific rule or ellipsis, provides a streamlined way of accounting for general as well as idiosyncratic aspects of reformulative MACs.
