Departmental Bulletin Paper 陸羽東線沿線地域方言で格助詞「サ」に後接する「バ」

佐々木, 冠

The structure where the particle=ba is preceded by case particle=sa (NP=sa=ba)is found in the dialects distributed along the Rikuu East Line. The grammatical function of the NP affects the acceptability of the structure. It is accepted most frequently when it appears in the indirect object position. The number of speakers accepting this structure decreases in the order indirect object > oblique (theme) object > goal > oblique subject. The younger generation tends not to use this structure. The particle=ba (described as accusative marker by some researchers) in the NP=sa=ba structure can be analyzed as a focus marker.
