Abstract:This paper investigates the spell-out of a subset of φ features, i.e. Person and Number, encoded on present perfect and pluperfect auxiliaries in a subset of Southern Italian dialects. We will claim that the overt marking of Person and Number on present perfect and pluperfect auxiliaries in these dialects depends on the application of a post-syntactic operation called Default Marking, according to which a φ feature gets overtly expressed at PF only if its degree of markedness is uniform with that expressed by Tense.
Key words:auxiliaries, markedness, default, Raddoppiamento Fonosintattico, metaphony
