We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Arabic ergative verbs

Dear linguists,

 I am writing a paper about unaccusative or ergative verbs in Arabic.
To my knowledge, nothing has been written before about this topic since it
is assumed that Arabic doesn't have ergative verbs.I would be grateful if
you tell me about anything in this respect
