Talk:Typological Features Template for Attie

Hi Joseph,

I used this line in connection with another page:


it could be used for this page ...

I am still looking for a nice way to represent the structure of a noun phrase:

how does the following table look? Do you think something similar could be used for Attie?

(determiner|quantifier) NOUN (demonstrative) (adjective +) (quantifier) (adjective +) (relative clause) (emphatic particle)

(1a) shows a deverbal nominal derived by the prefix a-. I am not so sure that I understand what you mean by a- stands for AGENT. In the translational gloss for (1b) it says that the meaning of the derived noun is beloved. Wouldn't the thematic role of the beloved rather be the Patient? I assume that Mary is the Patient in the sentence: John loves Mary? --Dorothee Beermann 20:58, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

The gloss for (1b) renders a- as a perfective marker. Hm... --Dorothee Beermann 21:14, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
