Abstract

Construction of question words in these dialects creates an interesting phenomenon. This is due to the fact that the same question word can occur at two different positions: at the initial or the final end of a sentence. Therefore, a field work was carried out in Baling, Kedah. A descriptive analysis of the North Malay dialect at Baling, Kedah evidenced that the question word bila can occur at two positions, specifically at the initial and at the final end of a sentence. The former position is known as in situ while the latter is known as moved position. The in situ phenomenon is against the rule of standard Malay language system. Therefore, this paper will elucidate the question word bila through syntactic analysis based on the framework of Minimalist Program (Chomsky, 1995). Syntactic analysis found out that C has a strong [uwh] feature but the strength does not require the word to move to the scope position. Instead, this analysis claims that the scope position Spec CP is attended by Op (empty category) in order to check the strong uninterpretable feature (uwh) at C'. At the same time, the presence of Op prevents the movement of the question words to the scope position. This analysis claims that the question word bila, that is in situ or moved, can check all the features before spell out. Therefore, these two phenomenon of the question word bila is language specific phenomenon for the Kedah Malay Dialect.
