Abstract/Summary The Australian language Jingulu makes use of a small set of optional deictic markers on nominals which are homophonous with some of the verbal tense markers in the language. It is a fairly straightforward matter to argue that the former use is derived from the latter via re-analysis of clauses. However, the choice of theoretical framework can lead to very different synchronic analyses: the standard lexicalist approach listing the verbal and nominal uses as separate homophonous morphemes; while a late-insertion approach opens up the possibility that a single vocabulary item can appear in either the verbal or the nominal context, with its interpretation subject to morphosyntactic context alone.
