JUANATEY, Mayra. Nominalization in quichua santiagueño: from words to clauses. Cuad. Lingüíst. Col. Méx. [online]. 2022, vol.9, e218.  Epub 09-Mayo-2022. ISSN 2007-736X.

The nominalizing suffixes (-q, -na, -sqa) in Santiagueño Quichua (Quechua, Argentina) intervene in lexical nominalization and constitute, at the same time, the language’s main strategy to introduce dependent clauses. Based on the theoretical discussions of the typological approach and working on a corpus of primary and secondary data, this work aims to draw, for each of the language’s nominalization strategies, a scale that extends from a pole of clausal nominalization to one of lexical nominalization, in terms of the distribution of morphological and syntactic properties. The intention is to determine the position on the scale of each of these strategies’ limits, between the expression of a lexical item and a clause. This objective differs from the descriptions available for other languages of the family that have focused on the distinction between finite and nominalized clauses, not on the differences of the latter with respect to the derived lexicon. It is also of crucial relevance to consider the semantics of each construction. Thus, participant-oriented nominalizations will be able to form lexical items (agentive, object, instrument/medium, place, quality, etc.) and express relative clauses on the syntactic level, while event-oriented nominalizations will only express adverbial or complement clauses.
