Person in the English Verb: the Problem of -s
AbstractWhen one thinks of the -5 ending in English, the first use that comes to mind is probably that in which it expresses the notion of plurality. However the -5 morph is also pressed into service for other very different purposes: as a sign of the possessive with the noun, and as a third person singular marker with the verb. It is this latter use which will occupy us more specifically here.
