Abstract: This paper compares various constructions which have been termed 'antipassive' according to a non-reductionalist and functionalist framework. 30 such constructions are included, and typologized according to the formal-functional features of each, in the context of the relevant languages' alignment systems. The paper attempts to add to knowledge on this issue, which, to date, has focused on small numbers of languages, avoiding broader typological analyses.
