    "description": "<p>Yoruba has a set of bisyllabic verbs that obligatorily split around a direct object,<br>\nas in Ad&eacute; ba il&eacute; n&agrave;&aacute; j&eacute;, meaning &lsquo;Ad&eacute; destroyed the house&rsquo;, where both ba and<br>\nj&eacute; make up the verb for destroy. These are called &ldquo;splitting verbs&rdquo; and have previ-<br>\nously been analyzed as requiring that the first verbal element be merged directly on<br>\nv. We introduce new data using an aspectual marker, t&uacute;n, meaning again, which<br>\nchanges the typical word order such that both verbal elements appear string ad-<br>\njacent following the object, as in Ad&eacute; t&uacute;n il&eacute; n&agrave;&aacute; baj&eacute;, meaning &lsquo;Ad&eacute; destroyed<br>\nthe house again&rsquo;. This data supports a movement-based analysis of splitting verbs<br>\nwhere both verbal elements are initially merged low in the structure, but the first<br>\nverbal element is moved through Asp to v.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
