The Typology of Semantic Alignment

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses semantic parameters relevant to the alignment systems of nine lesser-known languages of eastern Indonesia. The alignment is primarily determined by the proto-Agent feature ‘volition’ and the proto-Patient feature ‘undergoer of change of state’. The distinction between dynamic and static predicates plays only a limited role.

Keywords:   semantic alignment, Eastern Indonesia, proto-Agent, volition, proto-Patient, undergoer of change, dynamic, static
