Dear all,

  I am looking for non Indo-European languages that show auxiliary
selection similar to Italian or German, where transitive and unergative
verbs take one auxiliary verb and unaccusative take another.  If you
know any, could you give me a brief description (or recommend a
reference)?  Thank you for your help.
