Dear Diego, Apart from the very good references already given, there is also a PhD Thesis "La categoría de voz en el sistema verbal indoeuropeo" by Miguel Villanueva, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, in which the topic is also discussed.E.

Dear colleagues,


Does anyone know of a language in which the (former) marker of perfective aspect became a marker of middle voice? In Bocotá, a language of Panama, the marker -du has been described as a marker of perfective aspect (Gunn 1975), while in Buglere, a dialect of Bocotá, spoken in Southwestern Panama and Costa Rica, it clearly behaves as a marker of middle voice. While it is not difficult to trace the likely semantic reanalysis underlying this change, I would like to know if this has been attested elsewhere.


Thanks 


Diego
