Title: Toward a Typology of Causative Constructions
Written By: Jae Jung Song
Series Title: Languages of the World 23
Description:

This study provides cross-linguistic data to substantiate the typology of causative contructions on the basis of which a diachronic model of causative affixes has been proposed in Song [Lingua 82:151-200(1990)].
Three types of causative contructions are identified and exemplified: the compact type, the AND type and the PURP type. The study closes with a diachronic question whether the semantic neutralization of the purpose markers occurs initially in causatives. [reprinted from Languages of the World n05/1992].
