Morphosyntax and Semantics of Psych-predicates in Caquinte

Zachary O’Hagan

This article is a preliminary description of 14 verbs denoting mental states (knowledge, belief, desire, and affect) in Caquinte, an Arawak language of Peru, especially as concerns the morphosyntax of possible complements (nominal or clausal) and the semantics of roots and morphologically complex forms (e.g., with applicatives). It also describes the voice properties of these verbs and their effect on thematic interpretation, as well as the proleptic nature of some constructions. A major goal is the presentation of detailed empirical data that might not be found in either a grammar or a dictionary.
