Title The Viability of the Notion of Subject in Coast Tsimshian
Description:
The Viability of the Notion of Subject in Coast Tsimshian
"The status of subject as a linguistic universal is commonly assumed. For example, the classification of the word order of a language as SVO, SOV, etc. presupposes the universal occurrence of subject; many language universals such as Mithun's (1984) hierarchy for noun incorporation are
stated in terms of subject; and, some theories such as Relational Grammar take subject as a primitive."
