Reflexive and Reciprocal Elements in Ixil.
Ayres, Glenn
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v15 n2 p18-44 1990
Reflexives and reciprocals in Ixil, a Mayan language of Guatemala, appear to have features that distinguish them from reflexives surveyed in typological studies such as Faltz (1985) and Geniusiene (1987). Third person reflexives and reciprocals seem to have the form of a possessed noun optionally followed by a possessor NP. Moreover, reflexives occur only as direct objects, as subjects of copulative clauses, and in constructions derived from transitive verbs. Evidence for that analysis is presented, with a description of reflexives and reciprocal elements in Ixil. (Contains 18 references.) (Author/JL)
