Haude, Katharina 2022 Expressing directional caused accompanied motion in MovimaCaused Accompanied Motion: Bringing and taking events in a cross-linguistic perspective, Margetts, Anna, Sonja Riesberg and Birgit Hellwig (eds.), pp. 77–99
In Movima (isolate, Bolivia), caused accompanied motion is typically expressed with two verbs: jiwa-ɬe ‘bring’ and joy-ɬe ‘take’. They are composed of a root denoting directional motion (jiwa-‘come’ and joy‑ ‘go’) and an applicative suffix expressing causation and accompaniment (-ɬe). The core… read more | Chapter
Margetts, Anna, Katharina Haude, Nikolaus P. Himmelmann, Dagmar Jung, Sonja Riesberg, Stefan Schnell, Frank Seifart, Harriet Sheppard and Claudia Wegener 2022 Cross-linguistic patterns in the lexicalisation of bring and takeStudies in Language 46:4, pp. 934–993
This study investigates the linguistic expression of bring and take events and more generally of the semantic domain of directed caused accompanied motion (‘directed CAM’) across a sample of eight languages of the Pacific and the Americas. Unlike English, the majority of languages in our sample do… read more | Article
Haude, Katharina 2019 Grammatical relations in Movima: Alignment beyond semantic rolesArgument Selectors: A new perspective on grammatical relations, Witzlack-Makarevich, Alena and Balthasar Bickel (eds.), pp. 213–256
Movima (isolate, Bolivia) has two transitive constructions: direct/ergative and inverse/accusative. The most straightforward argument selector is relativization. Relativization selects the P of the direct and the A of the inverse construction, which, in each case, is the argument whose referent… read more | Chapter

Investigating information structure in lesser-known and endangered languages: An introductionInformation Structure in Lesser-described Languages: Studies in prosody and syntax, Adamou, Evangelia, Katharina Haude and Martine Vanhove (eds.), pp. 1–14
Haude, Katharina 2018 Chapter 8. A topic-marking cleft? Analyzing clause-initial pronouns in MovimaInformation Structure in Lesser-described Languages: Studies in prosody and syntax, Adamou, Evangelia, Katharina Haude and Martine Vanhove (eds.), pp. 217–244
While basic clauses in Movima are predicate-initial, one construction contains an initial free pronoun. Syntactic tests show that this “pronominal construction”, rather than resulting from a word-order change, is syntactically complex: The pronoun serves as the predicate and the verb behaves like a… read more | Chapter
Haude, Katharina 2018 Chapter 8. Nonverbal predication in MovimaNonverbal Predication in Amazonian Languages, Overall, Simon E., Rosa Vallejos and Spike Gildea (eds.), pp. 217–244
Movima (isolate, lowland Bolivia) is a language with predicate-initial constituent order in the core clause. There is no copula in affirmative clauses. Unpossessed common nouns can function as main-clause predicates just as well as verbs. The difference between verbal and nonverbal predicates only… read more | Chapter

Haude, Katharina 2010 The intransitive basis of Movima clause structureErgativity in Amazonia, Gildea, Spike and Francesc Queixalós (eds.), pp. 285–316
In Movima (unclassified, lowland Bolivia), the arguments of a transitive clause are basically encoded according to the position of their referents in a salience hierarchy, which includes deictic, semantic, and pragmatic levels. The participant roles of the arguments (actor or undergoer) are… read more | Article
