Applicative verbs and applicative construction in the Bantik language
This paper aims to describe applicative verbs and applicative constructions in Bantik, a West Malayo-Polynesian language spoken in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The applicative prefix paN- is attached to ‘double-voiced’ verb bases, that is, verbs which have two voice forms. Double-voiced verbs in Bantik take two arguments, and when the prefix paN- is attached they take one more argument, a nominal denoting either location or instrument.
