Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Actually, I did not need such a detailed explanation. The first one was absolutely sufficient.
But nevertheless thanks a lot for your effort. It was really quite informative, even if I did not understand everything you wrote there [:)]

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Hej!! As far as I understood, there isn't any category like subject or object in ergative languages, because of the case marking, which makes it difficult to say what's object and subject. But what would be called an indirect object? The direct object is the patient. The subject is the agent. Would ...

Re: Subordinate Clauses auf Deutsch.

"Ich weiß , er ist gut." Dieser Satz hört sich richtig an. "Ich weiß, er gut ist." Dieser Satzt hingegen klingt absolut falsch. Der erste Satz ist also richtig, der andere grammatikalisch falsch. Ich kann dir leider nicht genau sagen warum, aber das ist so. Es ist für mich komplitziert die Grammatik...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

My language is ergative-absolutiv. The main word order is VSO. But in ergative langs there isn't anything that could truly be considred as subject or object, caused by the way how the roles in sentences are marked, as far as I do understand. Well..., when describing my lang would it be right to desc...

This derived form is used in word compounds and marks the ergative case. The basic form marks absoluitve case. Out of the the bas...
