There is quite some literature on the uses of the -ish reciprocal suffix in Turkic, see for instance:http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/uhlcs/LENCA/LENCA-2/information/datei/06-nedjalkov-eng.pdf
and other references. The phenomenon you describe might be what Creissels calls 'coparticipation', see for instance:
There is a discussion of these issues in Turkic languages in Katarzyna Janic's book on antipassive;

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
