Qs: three correlations
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I've read here and there (although I don't remember where exactly)
that the following three correlations are correct:
a) OV languages show object agreement more usually than VO languages
b) Most ergative languages display OV order
c) Most ergative languages show object agreemen
I would like to know if these three statements (or any of them) are
actually true and, if so, where could I find supporting statistical
(Bonus: Of course, if you have an idea (or theory) about why these
facts should be so -if they are at all-, I would be glad to know it).
I will post a summary of the responses.
Thank you very much in advance,
