  • Milan RezacEmail author
Part of the Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory book series (SNLT, volume 81)


Chapter 3 concludes on a syntactic person hierarchy interaction in Arizona Tewa, in which the external argument alternates between a bare and oblique DP, according to whether it outranks the direct object on the hierarchy 1st/2nd > 3rd person.
