Article
This paper discusses the origins and possible grammaticalization pathways of three agent demoting prefixes in Katripul Puyuma, ki- , m-u- and kur- . All three morphemes can attach to both nominal and verbal stems. When they attach to nominal stems, they denote the meaning of ‘get’, ‘go’, and ‘reflexive’, respectively, and when they attach to verbal...
Article
This paper compares the aspectual and modal systems in two dialects of Puyuma—Nanwang and Katripul—and as a basis for the reconstruction of the protosystem. In modern Puyuma dialects, there is an asymmetry between Actor Voice (AV) and Undergoer Voice (UV) in terms of the aspectual/modal value that they may be used to denote. In both dialects, AV cl...
Article
The aim of this paper is twofold. We first provide a reassessment of the voice systems of Kanakanavu and Saaroa, two Austronesian languages spoken in southern Taiwan), and in particular show that their voice forms that were previously identified as patient focus (patient voice or undergoer voice: patient), locative focus (locative voice or undergoe...
Article
This paper aims to shed some light on the noun-verb distinction in Kanakanavu and Saaroa through a reassessment of their pronominal systems. For both Kanakanavu and Saaroa, we propose two sets of genitive pronouns, the first encoding nonsubject actors, and the second possessors. The characteristics of these pronoun sets differ in the two languages,...

In Puyuma, the marker i- is used to express meanings of wearing, possession, instrumentality, and existence. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how these different meanings can be related and what the developmental path is. It is suggested that the original meaning of this marker is 'carry, wear', and that this was later grammaticalized to...

2009) proposes the Nuclear Austronesian hypothesis, according to which the Formosan languages Puyuma, Rukai, and Tsou are each probably a primary branch of Austronesian and all Austronesian languages other than these three belong to a single, Nuclear Austronesian, branch defined by the nominalization-to-verb innovation originally proposed by Staros...

This paper examines noun phrase conjunction in three Puyuma dialects spoken in Nanwang, Katripul, and Tamalakaw villages. In each dialect, there is one strategy that only appears in noun phrase (NP) conjunction (e.g. kay in Nanwang, za+i/na in Katripul, inclusory pronouns in Tamalakaw) and one that is also used in clausal and sentential conjunction...

In this paper, various patterns of case syncretism in different Puyuma varieties are observed. In Nanwang Puyuma, genitive and oblique are syncretic, while in other dialectal varieties the distinction is partially preserved. In comparing the case paradigms, we come to observe and investigate the notion of syncretism syn- chronically and diachronica...

proposes to reconstruct two sets of numerals in PAN: the first is said to be underived and used for serial counting; the second is derived from the first through Ca-reduplication and is used to count humans. The aim of the present paper is to reassess the reconstruction of numerals from 20-90 in PAN and discuss the use of Ca-reduplication as a prim...

There is quite a longstanding convention whereby Formosan languages (the Austronesian languages of Taiwan) are described using a framework and termi-nology developed by linguists working on the Austronesian languages of the Philippines. Linguists using this terminology talk, for example, about the 'focus system' of verbal constructions and about th...
Article
Possession is a universal concept, and we expect every language to have at least one or two conventionalized strategies to express it. A distinction between predicative possession and adnominal possession can be made in terms of whether the possessive relation is expressed in a predicate or a nominal construction. It is predicative possession I am...

The purpose of this paper is to apply Croft's (2001) Radical Construction Grammar approach to an analysis of the major clause types in Puyuma in order to show how a constructional approach can illuminate the relationship among constructions from a typological perspective. When we compare the Puyuma clause system with that of English, we find the cl...
