1 Phonological and lexical arguments The intuition of the native Japanese speaker regarding the “wordhood” of a causative verb such as tazune-sase-ru “visit--” is clear – these verbs are single words. This intuition is supported by a number of phonological observations that have been made by Kitagawa (1986), McCawley (1968), Poser (1984), and others. We present here arguments from allomorphy and reduplication, and suggestive evidence from accentuation (for similar suggestive evidence from voicing spread and downdrift see Kitagawa 1986).

The case marking in the morphological causative thus parallels that of the lexical causative (10a) and that of simplex three-argument verbs (10b): (10) a. Taroo ga Ziroo *o/ni e o mise-ta. ” 5 Such forms are often pragmatically awkward, however, doubtless due to the incongruity of simultaneously honoring someone and making them the causee. 44             .       ,     .  ,            b. Taroo ga Ziroo *o/ni e o age-ta. ” Only the lexical analysis predicts the case marking of causatives from the general case marking requirements for three-argument verbs without a further stipulation.
