Abstract:

This book proposes an notion of inverse that differs from two widespread
positions found in descriptive and typological studies (one of them
restrictive and structure-oriented, the other broad and function-centered).
 The third stance put forward here takes both grammar and pragmatic
functions into account, but it also relates the opposition between direct
and inverse verbs and clauses to an opposition between deictic values,
thereby achieving two advantageous goals: it meaningfully circumvents one
of the usual analytic dilemmas, namely whether a given construction is
passive or inverse, and it refines our understanding of the
cross-linguistic typology of inversion. This framework is applied to the
description of the morphosyntax of eleven Amerindian languages (Algonquian:
Plains Cree, Miami-Illinois, Ojibwa; Kutenai; Sahaptian: Sahaptin, Nez
Perce; Kiowa-Tanoan: Arizona Tewa, Picurís, Southern Tiwa, Kiowa;
Mapudungun).
