Abstract:

Abaza, a little-documented Northwest Caucasian language, exhibits an
extensive agreement system. This book, the result of field work
carried out by Brian O'Herin, is both descriptive and analytical. As
a descriptive work, it provides thorough coverage of a significant
subsystem of Abaza grammar---the agreement system. Abaza exhibits
morphological agreement between a noun and its possessor, between a
postposition and its object, and between a verb and virtually all
verbal arguments, resulting in multiple agreement relationships. As
an analytical work, Case and Agreement in Abaza provides a unified
analysis of the agreement system within the theory of Principles and
Parameters, demonstrating how a variety of structures (causative,
applicative, inverted, etc.) can be accounted for within a single
simple analysis. O'Herin's work is valuable for those interested in
descriptions of languages of the Caucasus, as well as for
syntacticians, particularly those interested in agreement systems and
ergativity. 

Brian O'Herin received his Ph.D. in Linguistics in 1995. He has been
a member of SIL since 1984. He did field research on Abaza for more
than ten years and is currently assistant director of the Asia SIL
school in Darwin, Australia.
