Alleged Broad Subjects in Hebrew: A Rejoinder to Doron and Heycock

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In response to Doron and Heycock (2010), this rejoinder reaffirms the conclusion of Landau (2009) that Hebrew has no Broad Subject construction. Both in distribution and interpretation, the alleged "broad subject" patterns with left-dislocated phrases and not with standard subjects. Doron and Heycock's counterarguments are either inconclusive or confounded by independent factors.
