K'iche' and the Structure of Antipassive.
Davies, William D.; Sam-Colop, Luis Enrique
Language, v66 n3 p522-549 Sep 1990
Verb agreement in the K'iche' agentive voice appears to deviate from the ergative/absolutive system of other Mayan languages, leading some to treat agreement in the agentive as falling outside the regular agreement system as well as to differing views regarding appropriate syntactic representation of the agentive construction with respect to final transitivity vs. intransitivity.
