Abstract

Transitivity in the Cholim variety of Tangsa is seen to be a grammatical feature with low functional load. It is viewed in terms of three factors: the form of the verb (simplex, middle and causative), the relationship to markers of agentivity and anti-agentive, and the verbal agreement system of Cholim. Using traditional texts, the paper explores in detail the issues raised by an examination of transitivity, and relates the findings to the treatment of transitivity in other Tibeto-Burman languages and beyond.
