This chapter describes the semantic alignment in the Guaykuruan language Pilagá (Chaco region, Argentina) and situates it in a typological context. Pilagá exhibits an extensive fluid marking which involves distinctions of caused vs. spontaneous events, high vs. low intentionality, non-reflexive vs. reflexive acts, and, interestingly, movement to/from a vantage point.

Keywords:   Pilagá, Guaukuruan, Chaco, fluid marking, deixis, caused events, spontaneous events, high intentionality, low intentionality, non-reflexive
