What is ‘Argument Sharing’?
The paper discusses some possible interpretations of the notion ‘argument sharing’ in the analysis of Oriya serial verb constructions (SVCs). The paper in particular addresses the notion of ‘token-sharing’. We argue that the concept of token-sharing, although, due to its rigour, theoretically the most interesting construct, cannot be maintained for object sharing in Oriya VP-serialization. We therewith aim at exposing salient properties both of the construction type and the notion itself.
