The Typology of Semantic Alignment

Naomi Tsukida

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the verb classification system of Amis and explains it in terms of semantic features. The notions stativity and affectedness are employed in order to explain the system. It is shown that there are interesting analogies between the Amis system and ‘ordinary’ semantic alignment, although they look quite different at first sight.

Keywords:   Austronesian, stativity, affectedness, control
