  1. Richard Compton Says:

    Greenlandic agreement (and all of Inuit) follows an ergative-absolutive pattern; there’s a transitive paradigm that coindexes both ERG and ABS arguments and an intransitive paradigm that indexes only the ABS argument. In other words, ergative subjects trigger a different agreement pattern.
