English Abstract

Paiwan exhibits two kinds of nominalization yielding result nouns: the first takes place at the morphological level, the second at the syntactic. Both types of nominal should be distinguished from headless relatives or internally-headed relatives in Paiwan. That the nominalization of result nouns takes place at the syntactic level in languages like Paiwan may be due to the fact that focus/voice markers are required in this kind of nominalization. If so, this would appear to be problematic for Chomsky's (1995) claim that verbal affixation does not occur at the S-Structure.
