Constructed middles in Marori: an LFG analysis
This paper discusses middles in Marori (Isolate, TNG; Indonesian Papua), contributing to the theoretical debate as to the best approach to middles. Marori data on middles shows that the valence and transitivity of a middle structure is constructed in both morphology and syntax. However, certain lexical properties of the predicate (e.g. inherent reflexivity) are important. It is demonstrated that LFG’s parallel structure model is well suited to handle the properties of middles in Marori. Drawing...[Show more]
