Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Helmbrecht, Johannes (1999)

Abstract

(= Surrey 46) The opposition between speaker (1st person) and hearer (2nd and 3rd person) in verbal morphology is explored, including examples where the 2nd and 3rd person forms are syncretic (Chitimacha, Tonkawa and Sherpa). This is attributed to the psychological reality of the split between the self-conscious entity (1st person) and others.
