Abstract

We address three properties of Turkish morphology and VP coordination:
the identification of tense and aspect values across conjuncts, the optional
omission of affixes on non-final conjuncts coordinated with the word
ve and the obligatory sharing of scopal modals across conjuncts in coordination
structures with the affix -ip. For the modals in an -ip structure, we
propose an analysis that uses syntactic features to trigger the application of a
construction at the level of the coordinated VP introducing the scopal predications.
Our analysis is implemented in a small HPSG grammar and tested
against datasets confirming the functionality and consistency of the analysis.
