  Teaching & Learning Guide for: Typology of Ergativity Such patterning may be expressed at any linguistic level, morphological, syntactic, lexical or semantic. At the morphological level, there is ergative case marking, in which the Agent is case marked differently from the Actor, which is marked in the same way as the Undergoer. Winfred P. Lehmann 7. Ergativity Bernard Comrie Introduction Scope. Ergativity is a term used in traditional descriptive and typological linguistics to refer to a system of nominal case-marking where the subject of an intransitive verb has the same morphological marker as a direct object, and a different morphological marker from the subject of a transitive verb.

AN INTERPRETATION OF SPLIT ERGATIVITY AND RELATED PATTERNS SCOTT DELANCEY University of Colorado Nominative/absolutive case and verb agreement are, in many languages, indicators of a category which is here called VIEWPOINT: the perspective from which the speaker describes the event.

The book begins with an analysis of split person marking patterns in Chol, a Mayan language of southern Mexico. Here appearance of split ergativity follows naturally from the fact that the progressive and the imperfective morphemes are verbs, while the perfective morpheme is not.

book perfective morpheme is not. In this book, Jessica Coon argues that aspectual split ergativity does not mark a split in how case is assigned, but rather, a split in sentence structure. Specifically, the contexts in which we find the appearance of a nonergative pattern in an otherwise ergative language involve added structure--a disassociation between the syntactic predicate and the stem carrying the lexical.

While the analysis focuses on Chol, I propose that a biclausal analysis of split ergativity may account for splits in a number of unrelated languages. Finally, I examine other language with splits that lend themselves to this type of analysis, and suggest a grammatical basis for the universal tendency for languages with aspectual splits to Cited by: 6.

In languages with aspect-based split ergativity, one portion of the grammar follows an ergative pattern, while another shows a split. In this book, Jessica Coon argues that aspectual split ergativity does not mark a split in how case is assigned, but rather, a split in sentence structure.

Split conditions. The split is usually conditioned by one of these: The presence of a discourse participant (a first or second person) in the proposition. The Australian language Dyirbal behaves ergatively in all morphosyntactic contexts, except when one of these is involved. When a first or second person pronoun appears, however, it is marked according to a nominative–accusative pattern.

Her book Aspects of Split Ergativity was published by Oxford University Press in   Indo-Aryan languages are often described as ergative or split-ergative. The article investigates the extent of this claim, by looking at a number of constructions in 22 New Indo-Aryan languages. It is shown that ergative constructions are in general the minority, and that other mechanisms of alignment, such as transitivity-indicating agreement patterns, are as valuable.

Her book Aspects of Split Ergativity was published by OUP in. Ergativity refers to a grammatical pattern in which the logical subject of intransitive clauses and the logical object of transitive clauses share some grammatical features, and in this respect differ from transitive subjects.

This chapter argues that split ergativity is epiphenomenal, and that the factors which trigger its appearance are not limited to ergative systems in the first place.

In both aspectual and person splits, the split is the result of a bifurcation of the clause into two distinct case/agreement domains, which renders the clause structurally by: 5.

Aspects of Split Ergativity argues that aspect-based split ergativity does not mark a split in how Case is assigned, but rather, a split in sentence structure. The contexts in which we find the appearance of a nonergative pattern in an otherwise ergative language-namely, the nonperfective aspects-involve an intransitive aspectual matrix verb.

In both aspectual and person splits, the split is the result of a bifurcation of the clause into two distinct case/agreement domains, which renders the clause structurally.

Ergative–absolutive languages, or ergative languages, are languages that share a certain distinctive pattern relating to the subjects (technically, arguments) of es are Basque, Georgian, Mayan, Tibetan, a few Indo-European languages (such as the Kurdish languages and Hindi) and, to some degree, the Semitic modern Aramaic languages.

In an ergative language. In comparative linguistics, split ergativity is a feature of certain languages where some constructions use ergative syntax and morphology, but other constructions show another pattern, usually conditions in which ergative constructions are used varies from language to language.

This volume presents a collection of papers on the enticing and complex theme of Ergativity. The papers exemplify theoretical depth applied to a wide range of languages, with the majority of papers based on original fieldwork. Ergativity refers to a grammatical pattern.

Analyses In Part I of this article I surveyed aspectual splits in which the split or non‐ergative portion of the grammar take three different forms: (i) neutral, as in Basque and Tsez; (ii) extended ergative, as in Mayan; and (iii) ABS‐OBL as in Georgian and Warrungu.

That same issue of Lingua (vol. ) has several other papers that look at ergativity and its optionality. Malchukov overviews the effects of animacy on differential case marking, which is a superset of split-ergativity.
