Sample text

Interestingly, reports of past actions without a resulting state seem to be crosslinguistically relatively rarely used in ordinary discourse; it seems that people tend to associate pastness with “closure”. 1 Tense and Aspect 43 While most of these examples with PST express punctual perfective meanings, there is much evidence in our materials that PST is not perfective. Here are two such examples: (62) ah uwa pihkahlik - taʔ 1SG:NOM bad ‘I felt bad’ (117) (63) ah maʔa feel - PST nahleʔ olol - taʔ 1SG:NOM just little:while dance - PST ‘I only danced for a little while’ (194) Finally, we note that there is tense variation in our narratives; more data would be needed to generalize.

The inalienable possession construction is found with body parts, kin terms (except for ek'a ‘son’, and ok'o:to ‘children’ which inexplicably occur with either the suffixed or unsuffixed form), words for ‘friend’, and some (apparently important) material possessions, such as čhuya ‘house’: (39) c'ic'a khap - keʔte - khiʔ i bird wing - NOM broken - STAT ‘the bird’s wing is broken’ (65) (40) te pheʔ - i tuč'a - khiʔ 3SG foot - NOM big - STAT ‘his/her foot is big’ (j41) (41) i yawe ah huhkal - taʔ 1SG name 1SG:NOM remember - PST ‘I remembered my name’ (74) (42) cephi me č'a - kek'i - ya:miʔ ew 3SG:NOM 3SG husband DIR - leave - FUT ‘she’s going to leave her husband’ (705) BUT: (43) te - meʔ ok'o:t - i natuy' - siʔ 3SG - GEN children - NOM believe - DUR ‘his/her children believe (it)’ (58) Finally, here is a minimal pair illustrating the difference in interpretation between an alienably and an inalienably possessed noun: 16 The Noun Phrase (44) a.
