OK. Lyanjen has verbs that are conjugated for person as well as tense (like Romance languages). For example: Iar teuca ┴udridan. ia-r | teuc-a | ┴udrid-an I erg | love 1pSgPrSim | Audrid abs "I love Audrid." ┴udridar teuc ian. ┴udrid-ar | teuc-ě | ia-n Audrid erg | love 3pSgPrSim | I abs "Audrid loves me." Obviously, in the first sentence, "teuc" accords with the first person "ia", and in the second, it accords with the third person "Audrid". I can also construct a sentence like so: Teuc ian. teuc-ě | ia-n love 3pSgPrSim | I abs "(Someone) loves me." And I can go so far as to do this: Ian teuc. ia-n | teuc-ě I abs | love 3pSgPrSim "I am loved." Wait a minute... The rule seems to be that the verb doesn't accord with the *subject* of the sentence, but with the *nominative or ergative* in the sentence, and defaults to third person singular if no such noun is present. Is there anything wrong with doing this, i.e. does it violate some universal rule I haven't heard of?
