MA thesis

My MA thesis was titled “Examining Preferred Argument Structure and Referential Density in Mapudungun Narratives”. I coded a corpus of Mapudungun narratives for syntactic role, formal expression, animacy, information status, and semantic role. I then tested different predictions from the literature on preferred argument structure. The results were published as Matter (2020), a copy of the turned in version can be found here.
