Syntax-class was boring today, so I allowed my mind to drift, with unexpected results: I finally got around to starting work on tAruven's new-style verb-morphology. Before sharing my notes on the subject, how much of the work of a sentence does your verbs handle? What is marked on the verb itself, what is phased out to auxilliaries, how do you handle the copula (still not a resolved problem here - stay tuned)? Here's an appetizer for ya: All verbs by default agree with the 1st person singular pronoun in the subject (S and A), (so that the speaker never needs mention him/herself), except for weather-verbs like 'snow', 'rain' etc., so you have <rI> "give": rI duba=FE Ui=F0 I.AGENT give knife.PATIENT you.BENEFACTIVE I.AGENT is understated Then you have: rIaf Ui=F0 I.AGENT give_something you.BENEFACTIVE Both agent and patient understated, and: rIivaf I.AGENT give_something_to_someone All arguments understated. Stay tuned... tal.
