Switch-reference and Insubordination in Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan)*

Abstract [en]

In this article, the switch-reference system of Ngarla (Ngayarta, Pama-Nyungan) is described in detail. Switch-reference is shown exclusively to occur in non-restrictive relative clauses. There are three sets of suffixes marking switch-reference, tense being distinguished with same subject marking. The so-called 'naturalness assumption' regarding the association between SS/DS marking and simultaneous/sequential ordering is shown to hold true in certain contexts. However, it may also be violated. Switch-reference marked constituents that form part of noun phrases are also discussed, as well as insubordinate uses (in Evans' 2007 sense) of the switch-reference suffixes, and marked and unmarked switch-reference clauses.
