DIFFERENTIAL OBJECT MARKING (DOM)Q2

Abstract

 Some languages, with overt case marking of their DIRECT OBJECTs, do not mark all their objects in the same way. They only mark a subset of their objects depending on the semantic and pragmatic features of the objects. This phenomenon is called Differential Object Marking (DOM). Features associated with DOM are the ANIMACY and/or DEFINITENESS of the DIRECT OBJECTs. This article studies the DOM in three selected modern North-Western Iranian languages, namely Tati, Taleshi and Balochi. Aissen's (2003) optimality-theoretic analysis of DOM based on the two hierarchies of ANIMACY and DEFINITENESS was used as the theoretical framework for this study. It was concludesd that DOM exists in the languages discussed here and the cut-off point on ANIMACY and DEFINITENESS has been shown.
