Book Information

   

Title: Voice and Inversion
Edited By: T. Givón
Description:

This collection aims first to establish a structure-independent, language-independent definition of pragmatic voice, and more specifically then a universal functional definition of 'inverse'. The grammar and pragmatic function of the four major voice constructions -- direct-acive, inverse, passive, antipassive -- are surveyed using narrative texts from 14 languages: Koyukon (Athabascan), Plains Cree, (Algonquian), Chepang (Tibeto-Burman), Squamish and Bella Coola (Salish), Sahaptin (Sahaptian), Kutenai (isolate), Suriinam Carib (Carib) Cebuano and Karao (Philippine).
