Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns with desiderative verb sequences in Uchumataqu. It presents an overview of the geographic and demographic situation as well as of the language itself. It then briefly discusses the theoretical background. The author argues that desiderative verb sequences are reminiscent of serial verb construction (henceforth SVC) but cannot be called SVC themselves. The chapter presents the desiderative verb sequences in greater detail, and provides a description of Secondary-B concepts. The chapter also presents Uchumataqu verb sequences and describes some instances that are possibly due to Spanish influence. Finally, it briefly discusses nominalised object arguments.

Keywords: desiderative verb sequences; nominalised object arguments; secondary-B concept; serial verb construction; Uchumataqu
