Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the methods of the structural-typological tradition are employed when discussing grammatical relations. It concentrates on morphological and syntactic aspects of the notion of subject. The chapter deals with different types of interrogatives, beginning with polar questions. This is followed by a discussion of constituent or "wh-" questions with a brief sub-section dedicated to multiple constituent questions. The coordination of two or more finite clauses in Kharia is achieved through any of a large number of conjunctions. The chapter discusses various types of subordination in Kharia, including "adverbial clauses" (purpose, causal / instrumental, temporal, conditional and counterfactual, concessive and depictive) and complement clauses. It examines large number of productive strategies for expressing propositional attribution ("relative clauses"). Finally the chapter presents a detailed discussion of propositional attribution in Kharia, constructions which correspond to relative clauses in languages such as English.
