Sample text

9. Note that some Tibeto-Burman languages have BAPs of the serial type. This is consistent with the fact that the territory occupied by Tibeto-Burman languages overlaps with the South East Asian linguistic area, characterized by extensive use of SVCs in general, and of ­benefactive SVCs in particular.  Denis Creissels (33) Pāli – Hendriksen (1944:134), quoted by Butt & Tantos (2004) … assamapadam» ānetvā aggim» katvā adāsi. ’ (34) Tamil – Krishnamurti (2003:376) Rājā kumār-ukkuk katav-ai tir ‒ant-u kozutt-ān ‒.

Henkilö opettel-i suome-a yksilö-n vuoksi. ’ b. Jäätelö sul-i sähkökatko-n vuoksi. ’ In Tashelhiyt, the dative can mark beneficiaries, as in (45a) and also unintentional causers (“involuntary agents”, see Kittilä, to appear), as in (45b): (45) Tashelhiyt (Rapold, this volume) a.

Concerning the distinction between complex predicates of the serial type and the combination of a monoverbal predicate with an adposition, the uncontroversial cases of SVCs are those in which each of the verbs involved in the construction shows at least some of the inflectional variations characteristic of verb forms heading independent clauses. In such cases, it may happen that the verbs involved in a SVC show parallel inflection (if V1 and V2 show identical inflectional marks) or distributed inflection (if some of the inflectional marks characteristic of verbs heading independent clauses attach to V1, and some others, to V2).
