Dear sir/madam,I am Fumi Niinuma, a grad student at UConn.I would like to know the following judgementsin Maithili. This is very important under myanalysis, so I really want to know the status ofthe following data, which is given below:(2) Har?-j?-k?1    lag-ait      ch-ainh           H-h-dat        seem-IP      aux-3hNN    [je           t1   khu??      bhe-l-ainh]    comp              happy      be-PT-3hNN  �Hari seems to have been happy�(3)  Har?-j?-k?1     lag-ait      ai-ch       H-h-dat         seem-IP      3-Aux          [je         t1   khu??      bhe-l-ainh]      comp             happy     be-PT-3hNN     'Hari seems to have been happy�In (2), the matrix verb shows the non-nominative agreement with the raised dative subject.On the other hand, (3) shows that the dative subject does not undergo any agreementwith the matrix verb.
