Abstract

In this paper I will argue that verb inflection in the Wǎdū variety of Pǔmǐ is not based on actor-agreement or person-number agreement as has been attested for several other Pǔmǐ varieties, but is based rather on pragmatic notions of volition and control that tie in with evidentiality and egophoricity, similar to that reported for Tibetan dialects.
