Totoli documentation corpus 2


This project investigates whether there is evidence for widely attested prominence relations relevant at the syntax-semantics interface (e.g. agentive arguments tend to be more prominent than non-agentive ones) in western Austronesian symmetrical voice languages. These languages challenge the concept of prominence because they exhibit two (or more) equally marked constructions to express transitive eventualities. The project looks at the discourse factors governing these voice alternations, at linear ordering constraints, and at the alternation between the dynamic and the potentive paradigm.
