Transitivity and affectedness in Mon


Jenny, Mathias (2014). Transitivity and affectedness in Mon. Journal of Mon-Khmer Studies, 43(1):57-71.

Abstract

The present study investigates the different uses of causative/transitive directionals in Mon and the functional differences between the basic and causative forms. Dealing with a typologically rare phenomenon, this study adds to our understanding of complex verbal predicates and transitivity not only in the Southeast Asia context, but also cross-linguistically. The study is based on original data collected in Thailand and Myanmar from different varieties of Mon, supplemented by published texts such as journal articles and short stories, as well as elicited data.
