In the present study, we examine the main argument coding systems, in a typological perspective, and address the question of the relationship between semantically based and syntactically based alignments. Also, we propose an explanation of the well-known instability of the argument coding systems across languages, based on the interface between formal (specifically, morphosyntactic) and functional (specifically, semantic) features.

Abstract

In the present study, we examine the main argument coding systems, in a typological perspective, and address the question of the relationship between semantically based and syntactically based alignments. Also, we propose an explanation of the well-known instability of the argument coding systems across languages, based on the interface between formal (specifically, morphosyntactic) and functional (specifically, semantic) features.
