Title: Neither You Nor I Nor He: The Relacional Morpheme In Person Hierarchy And Differential Object Marking In Kadiweu [nem Eu, Nem Você E Nem Ele: O Morfema Relacional Em Hierarquia De Pessoa E Marcação Diferenciada De Objeto No Kadiwéu]
Author: Sandalo F.
Abstract: In kadiwéu, a Waikurúan language, the person of the object affects agreement as well as constituent order. The verb must be marked by a relational morpheme if the internal argument is fi rst or second person, and a person agreement morpheme appears according to the 1plOBJ>2>1>3 hierarchy. Moreover, first/second person internal arguments must precede the verb (OV order, the relational is marked) but third person internal arguments follow it (VO order, no relational marker). This work presents the claim that the so-called relational morpheme is an agreement morpheme. According to this view, it is an impoverished morpheme that marks agreement with a dislocated internal argument. More specifi cally, this work claims that kadiwéu person agreement prefi xes are TP agreement, whereas the so-called relational is vP agreement reversed to [-author, -participant]. This work develops Rodrigues's (1990) ideas on person neutralization.
