Expressions of directed caused accompanied motion events in Totoli, a western Austronesian language of Indonesia
This chapter discusses expressions of directed caused accompanied motion (directed CAM) events in Totoli, a western Austronesian language of eastern Indonesia. The most frequent strategy to express directed CAM events in Totoli is to combine a take verb with one of two directional clitics that denote motion either towards or away from the deictic centre. The goal of the directed motion can be made explicit by including a prepositional phrase or by applicative or voice morphology. Alternatively, a hold verb, a carry verb, or, very rarely, an accompaniment verb can be used, again requiring directionals and applicative morphology.
