Co-Referential Fourth Person Pronouns

Post by eldin raigmore »

From the abstract of Coreferential Fourth‐Person Pronouns in Matses by David W. Fleck of LaTrobe Univ.
Mates, a Panoan language spoken in Amazonian Peru and Brazil, has two fourth‐person (= “interclausal third‐person coreferential”) pronouns, an ergative one (ambi ) and an absolutive one (abi ), that are used in subordinate clauses to indicate coreference with an argument in a higher clause. These fourth‐person pronouns are typologically exceptional in that they do not also code possession or intraclausal coreference, do not play a role in indirect speech, and coreference is not restricted to matrix subjects.
Can anyone reading this afford the $10.00 it takes to download this PDF?
Or get it for a cheaper price?
