Somebody runs faster than me.
I am especially interested in those two. How do you handle non-referential quantifiers, like "nobody" and "somebody"? Can they occur as regular arguments of a verb? Or do the show some special syntactic behaviour? Perhaps there are no equivalents to "nobody", "somebody" and other non-referential expressions in your conlangs?

She runs faster than me.
IMHO, doesn't seem peculiar to me. :lat: :heb: and :grc: have Cognate Accusatives all over the place; why not a Cognate ADJ/ADV ?
Heck, I did it in my Rozwi renditions above.

i.e.
šeltēk šletuge '(s)he runs faster'

both have root Š-L-T ( ؟ Wut‽ A triconsonantal root? It this a trace of my attempts at a semitic :con: ...... [B)] :roll: )

but Cf. also
šeltēk šilitō '(s)he runs very fast'

šeltēk šeleit '(s)he runs fast'


BTW :grc: also has Cognate Datives, which would quack and waddle more like my ADV examples, in that :grc: has Dative of Instrument.

Plus, it was an alliterative effect not unlike the Old :eng: alliterative verse of Beowulf.
