The expression of directed caused accompanied motion (CAM) events in Chipaya
The paper investigates the expression of directed caused accompanied motion (directed CAM) events in Chipaya, an endangered isolate of the Bolivian highlands. Directed CAM events are defined through the following four components: motion; causation; accompaniment; and directedness. Chipaya has only two take verbs that express these notions: ʂixk‑ ‘take’ and tʃhitʃh ‑ ‘take.to’. Directed CAM events in Chipaya are expressed either through these verbs or by manner-specific CAM verbs when these are subordinated to ʂixk‑ ‘take’ and tʃhitʃh ‑ ‘take.to’. The findings presented in the following result from a project on “Cross-linguistic patterns in the encoding of three-participant events – investigating BRING and TAKE”, drawing on data from fieldwork by the Chipaya DobeS team.
- 1.1The Chipaya language and data
- 1.2Grammatical background relevant for the expression of directed CAM-events
- 2.Directed CAM-events in Chipaya
- 2.1Directed CAM-verbs: take
- 2.2Manner-specific CAM-verbs and their role in expressing directed CAM-events
