Possessives within and beyond NP
Two ezafe- constructions in Tatar
The paper considers possessives in two ezafe -constructions in Tatar, a language without articles. More specifically, possessives in the so-called ezafe -2 and ezafe -3 constructions are distinguished formally by the presence of the genitive case on the possessive and the agreeing form of the possessive marker on the head in ezafe -3, but not in ezafe -2. The two types of possessors appear in distinct structural positions in the elaborate structure of a noun phrase, though neither of them remains inside NP. The two types of possessives themselves are of different size: the possessive in ezafe -3 is a full-fledged DP, but the possessive in ezafe -2 is a Small Nominal (Pereltsvaig 2006).
