Frislandian: There are two main ways of forming the reflexive in Frislandian. Either the reflexive may be used, or a personal pronoun referencing the subject may be used in object position in the absolutive with the subject in the ergative.

:con: Yélian

Yélian has two ways of expressing reciprocity: A wide amount of verbs are suppletive for a reciprocial meaning, like shown in the first sentence.

An'îyin yiucletʻi.
[anˈiːçin ʃiuˈklɛtʔi]
DEF.ANIM-child-PL PST-meet-3SG
The children meet each other.

"Ucleta" has an exclusive meaning of reciprocity, where "A meets B" would require "vala", to see.

Cen yinacʻi.
[kɛn ʃiˈnakʔi]
3PL PST-talk-3PL
There were talking to each other.

Same here; "A talks to B" would require a verb like pala, bica etc.

The much more usual way is to use the reciprocal pronoun " evaneʻi". It's used for most of the verbs, and also with prepositions.

Cen yipinʻi fecun evaneʻi.
[kɛn ʃiˈpinʔi ˈɸɛkʊn ɛvɐˈnɛʔi]
3PL PST-spielen-3PL with each-other
They were playing with each other.

:con: Caelian

Caelian expresses reciprocity with the comitative case. The difference between "The children meet each other" and "one children meets with another one" is in the verb conjugation. For reciprocity you conjugate after 3PL>3PL to emphazise that both are doing it equally. If it was a "A does X with B" action, you'd instead conjugate after 3SG>3SG.

The verb roots used are j-kl-g (acquaintance, to meet), m-ll-s (voice, to talk) and wy-lyd-z (play, to play, playing).

:tan: Swahili has a derivative verb suffix to indicate reciprocality, but in situations where it can't be used, such as when it's prepositional, pamoja "together" is used.

Watoto walikutana.
watoto wa-li-kut(a)-an(a)
children(CL2) CL2-PST-meet-RECIP

The children met each other.

Walikuwa wakicheza pamoja
wa-li-ku-w(a) wa-ki-chez(a) pa-moja
CL2-PST-EXT-be CL2-SITU-play/dance CL16-one

They were playing with each other.

Walizungumza pamoja.
wa-li-zungumz(a) pa-moja
CL2-PST-converse CL16-one

They talked to/with each other.

Class 16 is the specific locative class, so pamoja essentially means "at one place".

I’ll take this separate set of sentences instead to show the differences:

:eng: English
The children talked to them.
The children talked to themselves.
The children talked to each other.


:che: Swiss German
A different group is referred to by the normal third person plural pronoun. The “emphatic” pronoun ina could be used contrastively, if this is desired.
D’Kinder hen mit na gredet.

Code: Select all

d=kind-er       hen    mit  na     g-red-et
DEF.PL=child=PL AUX.PL with 3p.DAT PTCP-speak-PTCP
“The children spoke with them”

For reflexive, the reflexive pronoun sich is used in conjunction with the adverb(?) selber.
D’Kinder hen mit sich selber gredet.

Code: Select all

d=kind-er       hen    mit  sich   selber g-red-et
DEF.PL=child=PL AUX.PL with 3.REFL self   PTCP-speak-PTCP
“The children spoke with themselves”

For reciprocal, the above construction without selber would be alright, but at least in this example, changing the preposition as well is more natural.
D’Kinder hen unter sich gredet.

Code: Select all

d=kind-er       hen    unter sich g-red-et
DEF.PL=child=PL AUX.PL under self PTCP-speak-PTCP
“The children spoke among themselves”

:con: Mesak
If both participants are distinct groups, a third person pronoun in the dative is used here.
Sísvs ísvñ bañvi.

Code: Select all

sís-v-s      ísi-v-ñ  bañ-v-i
child-PL-ABS 3-PL-DAT speak-PL-3
“The children speak to them”

Reflexives are generally conveyed by the reflexive voice, which transforms transitives to intransitives. This is problematic for a verb like “speak” which is intransitive, as Mesak is very strict about transitivity. So in order to apply it, first an applicative has to be used, raising the dative to direct object. Then the reflexive voice is applied to the derived verb, turning it intransitive again.
Sísvs bañuñgsavi.

Code: Select all

sís-v-s      bañ-uñg-sa-v-i
child-PL-ABS speak-DAT-REFL-PL-3
“The children to-self-speak.”

Reciprocals are marked exactly the same as reflexives, except that the NP is marked with the ergative rather than the absolutive. This is in fact the only place in Mesak’s grammar where ergative is used outside its normal usage case.
Ñ-isísnvs bañuñgsavi.

Code: Select all

ñ=i-sís-nv-s          bañ-uñg-sa-v-i
ERG=3-child-SG>PL-ABS speak-DAT-REFL-PL-3
“The agentive children to-self-speak.”
and yes the ergative construction is dumb but it’s staying
At kveldi skal dag lęyfa,
Konu es bręnnd es,
Mæki es ręyndr es,
Męy es gefin es,
Ís es yfir kømr,
Ǫl es drukkit es.

The sentences mix and match strategies Silvish has for reciprocals. When the verb is transitive and implies reciprocity (as opposed to reflexivity), just a reciprocal/reflexive pronoun is used, as in the first sentence. When the verb is intranstive and requires the preposition a "to", a reciprocal pronoun is paired with a variant of the phrase l' é a l' eûtri "one to the other". That's what happened in the third sentence. Finally, when an intransitive verb takes a preposition other than a, a variant on the phrase l' é [preposition] l' eûtri "one [preposition] the other" is used on its own, as in the second sentence.

Nasiǝl tends to use the mediopassive voice for this sort of thing when it's as the object of a sentence, and taħsan (together) or istarna (within) when it would be a prepositional phrase in English.

Now I'm not quite so sure how logical it is to include a reciprocal pronoun with a reciprocal verb, so I just drop it with the accusative, and decline it elsewhere, until I figure out what to do.
