Workshop on Indonesian-type Voice System


This workshop will primarily discuss Indonesian-type voice systems, which are characterised by the distinction of two voice constructions (actor voice and undergoer voice), and by applicative constructions (see Ross 2002: 52 and Arka and Ross 2004: 7, Adelaar 2006: 7). The main aim is to gather descriptive studies of individual languages of this type, in order to share knowledge on common features and the extent of variation to be found within the group. [more]
