Argument marking in ditransitive alignment types

Haspelmath, Martin

This paper discusses indirective, secundative and neutral alignment in ditransitive constructions, both with respect to argument flagging (adpositional or case marking) and argument indexing ("agreement"), based on a sample of 100 languages. The parallels with monotransitive alignment and accusative and ergative patterns are also explored.
