I have presented my work on Predicate Doubling in Russian at the Linguistics Society of American annual meeting in New York on January 3, 2019.
In Predicate Doubling constructions, either an entire predicate (VP-Doubling) or a bare verb (V-Doubling) occurs in the CP-domain; the doubled verb appears in a non-finite form. In case of VP-Doubling, the arguments of the verb only occur in the higher instance. This paper provides novel data from Russian and argues that while similar, VP-Doubling and V-Doubling must be analyzed differently. VP-Doubling involves base-generation of the entire predicate in the CP-peripheral position, while V-Doubling is an instance of head movement. I consider island effects, identity requirement, and long-distance doubling, and demonstrate how these asymmetries can be derived from the proposed analysis.
