Linguistic Field: Morphology; Syntax; Typology
Abstract: Paper deals with a subtype of stative auxiliaries in Mayangna that are analyzed here as classifier (positional) auxiliaries.

Paper proposes an analysis by which (verbal) classifiers are analyzed as D-class features that parasitize unto a verbal functional head. Crosslinguistic differences are the result of morphological properties (such as whether the morpheme is bound or free) and syntactic properties (such as whether there is head movement in the verbal domain).
