Redirective applicatives signal applied objects with various semantic roles, including dative, benefactive, and possessor. Languages with several suffixes tend to specialize according to the meaning of the applied objects. The chapter presents a catalog of redirective applicatives in Salish, showing the forms and functions of the redirective constructions in each language. It reviews the information on each redirective suffix in terms of its distribution and usage. Finally, the chapter concludes with some remarks on the diachrony and typology of on the Salish redirective system.
