"San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec, an endangered and little-examined indigenous language of Mexico, shows a range of syntactic and morphological phenomena incompatible with standard Minimalist accounts of verb movement: verbs and clearly phrasal constituents behave identically in a number of syntactic constructions, and the ordering of verbal morphemes is problematic for standard assumptions of verbal head movement.
An Introduction to San Lucas Quiaviná? Zapotec.- Background and Theoretical Assumptions.- The Syntax of Verb Raising in SLQZ: Arguments for VP Raising.- Further Consequences of VP-Remnant Movement: Some Common Negation Structures in SLQZ.- More on the Structure of the Left Periphery:The Syntax of Questions.- The Interaction of Tense and Aspect in San Lucas Quiaviná?Zapotec.

San Lucas Quiaviní Zapotec, an endangered and little-examined indigenous language of Mexico, shows a range of syntactic and morphological phenomena incompatible with standard Minimalist accounts of verb movement: verbs and clearly phrasal constituents behave identically in a number of syntactic constructions, and the ordering of verbal morphemes is problematic for standard assumptions of verbal head movement.

This work proposes a VP-remnant raising account for these phenomena, motivated by Kayne¿s (1992) Antisymmetry program. This work also examines consequences of phrasal remnant movement for negation constructions, question formation; and the interpretation of tense, aspect, and mood.
