Title Nisgha Possessives
Description:Nisgha Possessives
Nisgh makes precise distinctions between different kinds of possession through morphological and syntactic means. Nisgha, like many other languages, distinguishes between the point
of view of the possessor of an object, and that of the observer concentrating on a feature of the possessor. Within the point of view of the possessor, it differentiates between singular and collective 'possess Ions'."
