Subject:  ergative to accusative alignment

Dear all,

Does anybody know about languages which have changed from ergative alignment
to accusative alignment? or does anybody know about the mechanisms involved
in such a change? what are the studies concerning this issue? and if there
are any, are they accessible online?

Thank you very much in advance

kind regards,
Raheleh Izadifar
