Last week ErgLab introduced Mayan languages and some of the problems they raise for a unified theory of ergativity. This week, we move on to a new language family. Maayan and Lisa will be introducing Austronesian languages, which will provide the second empirical fount for our investigation of ergativity over the course of the project.

We’ll be meeting from 1:30–2:30 in room 117, all are welcome!
