Subject: [Lingtyp] collective action marking

Hi All,
A student in China (Liu Weifeng) working on Kyrgyz asked me for references about collective marking on the verb. This marking in Kyrgyz (-ish-) is distinct from plural marking, and used together with plural marking, and implies the action was done by two or more people together rather than individually.

I am aware of the following article, though do not have access to it, and don’t even know know for sure whether it documents this phenomenon:

Nedjalkov, Vladimir P. 2007. Reciprocals, assistives and plural in Kirghiz. In Nedjalkov, Vladimir (with the assistance of Emma Geniusiene and Zlatka Guentcheva) (eds.), Typology of reciprocal constructions, 1231-1280. Amsterdam: Benjamins.

I don't know of any other works on this type of category in any language. Has this been looked into in any languages?

Thanks!

Randy
