Egophoricity as interpretable agreement

December 2021
 

This paper deals with egophoricity in Mehweb Dargwa, an East Caucasian language. The main proposal of this paper is that egophoricity should be analyzed as a syntactic phenomenon, due to its sensitivity to syntactic locality in Mehweb. The syntactic part of egophoricity is argued to involve two probes: a person probe and an index probe, the first being relevant for realization of egophoric morphology and the second for egophoric interpretation.
