This study provides cross-linguistic data to substantiate the typology of
causative contructions on the basis of which a diachronic model of
causative affixes has been proposed in Song [Lingua 82:151-200(1990)].

Three types of causative contructions are identified and exemplified: the
compact type, the AND type and the PURP type. The study closes with a
diachronic question whether the semantic neutralization of the purpose
markers occurs initially in causatives.
