Merge: Binarity in (Multidominant) Syntax
Citko, Barbara; Gracanın Yüksek, Martına (The MIT Press, Cambridge (MA), USA , 2021-02-01)
An argument that Merge is binary but its binarity refers to syntactic positions rather than objects. In this book, Barbara Citko and Martina Gračanin-Yuksek examine the constraints on Merge—the basic structure-building op...
Conjunction saves multiple sluicing: How *(and) why?
Citko, Barbara; Gracanın Yüksek, Martına (Ubiquity Press, Ltd., 2020)

The Interaction of Contextual and Syntactic Information in the Processing of Turkish Anaphors
Gracanın Yüksek, Martına; Safak, Duygu Fatma; Demir, Orhan; Kırkıcı, Bilal (2017-12-01)
In contrast with languages where anaphors can be classified into pronouns and reflexives, Turkish has a tripartite system that consists of the anaphors o, kendi, and kendisi. The syntactic literature on these anaphors has ...
Conjoined wh-questions
Gracanın Yüksek, Martına (John Wiley & Sons, West Sussex, UK , 2017-11-01)
