Abstract

In Halkomelem, the relational applicative suffix ‑me‘ is suffixed to an intransitive psychological predicate to form a transitive construction where the experiencer is the subject and the stimulus is the object. We detail the morphosyntactic properties of psych applicatives and contrast them with other constructions formed on the same predicates. A brief look at other languages reveals that psych applicatives are relatively rare in languages of the world but robustly attested in Salish languages.
