Transliteration
Following Broadwell (2006), I adopt the original orthography of examples, details in Broadwell (2006: xxiii, 4-7).
CommentsFor convenience, I substitute the "agreement class" glosses 'I', 'II', 'III' with 'A', 'O', and 'DAT', respectively. This is in accordance with the basic verbal functions of these markers, and the gloss 'III' for the dative applicative im-. Please refer to Broadwell (2006: 137-153) for a detailed discussion.
