Complementation strategies in Kambaata

Yvonne Treis


The choice of the complementation strategy in Kambaata is dependent on (morpho-)syntactic parameters and the semantic class of the complement-taking verb. There are no independent complementisers but syntactic dependence is marked by verbal inflection and by clause-final enclitics. There is a considerable overlap between the strategies employed for the encoding of complement, relative and adverbial clauses (purpose and conditional clauses, in particular).
