Prepare a 1-2 page summary of the article.
Include the complete reference to the article.
Briefly describe and illustrate the linguistic phenomenon at hand.
Include the information about the research question, the corpus used in the study, and the type of annotation(s).
Many articles use advanced statistical techniques, you are not expected to understand the details. Focus on the big picture.

1 Islands (8 points)
Each of the following statements violate a constraint. State which of the following con-
straints it is: Wh-island, Subject Constraint, Complex DP constraint, Coordinate Structure
Constraint, Adjunct Island.

2 Tree transformations (12 points)
For the trees given below, please list the transformations involved from the following list:
do-support, Expletive insertion, V to T movement, T to C movement, Internal subject
raising, DP movement, Wh-movement
Think of what the D-structure (i.e., the underlying form is) in order to figure out which
transformations have applied. The first tree is done for you as an example. Note: The
tree is missing arrows to indicate movement but the traces are present.
Example: Who was expected to leave the ball by midnight?
Transformations involved:
1. Internal subject raising
2. DP movement
3. Wh-movement
4. V to T movement
5. T to C movement

Tree 2: What did you buy at the mall?

3 Design your own question (10 points)
Look through the past problem sets and write up your own question and include the cor-
rect answer. It can be a tree drawing problem or analyzing a dataset or anything similar.
You can create a problem based on any of the topics we have covered this semester: con-
stituency, X-bar theory, DP hypothesis, null DPs/CPs, theta theory, head movement, DP
movement, wh-movement, locality constraints. If you will be including non-English data,
please include the gloss (word-by-word translation).
You will get full points on this problem for your new question and its answer. If you only
design a question but do not include the answer, you will get half the points.
If you are working in pairs, please include two questions i.e., each student designs one
question e.g.:
John’s Question:
Answer:
Mary’s Question:

I need someone reliable that knows Linguistics 1st year level. I have an exam on December 9 and you will have 2-3hrs to complete the exam that I will be uploading on that day. I need someone who will not fail to deliver the complete exam. I have dealt with 2 tutors who ran out of time and failed to deliver an excellent service. I am paying a lot of money here so I don’t want to waste it again like I did on those other two tutors who failed me. I will upload every lecture materials and practice questions/answers up until the last lecture that we have.

Read the article by Evans (2019). You can skip sections 3.4 and 3.5.
Answer the following questions:
1) What major explanatory problems does the article attempt to address? (Spell it out in one paragraph).
2) What explanations are offered in the article as to why convergence is a more expected outcome under language contact?
3) The article emphasizes that the phonetic level is a highly salient and symbolic aspect of language difference and policing of phonological ‘purity’ is commonly used in situations of contact. Can you think of examples from other languages you are familiar with where such policing has happened or is happing these days?
4) Describe briefly in your own words the various mechanisms for generating divergent structures in language structure.

The program should do the following: • Read an input file named error.txt; • Use NLTK to split the text in the file into sentences; • Print each sentence in the output (i.e. on the screen); • If the sentence contains any of the grammatical errors listed below, print the error type or error types below the sentence in the format specified below.| File 2 is “error.txt” and File 3 is “output.txt”

• provide an overview of the history of research and the status of description (reference at least 4 different publications)

Prepare a handout that can be used for a brief presentation in small groups.
For your handout you should:
• present the Altaic linguistic area (i.e., where, which languages, and language families)
• outline the shared culture and history of the area
• provide an overview of the history of research and the status of description (reference at least 4 different publications)
• illustrate two linguistic features which figure prominently in the research on the area, (it is better to pick more unique features or less familiar ones)
Handouts in linguistics are a register of their own kind:
Use bullet points and headers to structure the handout. Use abbreviated sentences, not complete paragraphs! And keep your handout short (2 pages max. with everything)
