English abstract
The monograph is a study of clause structure in the closely related Circassian languages, Adyghe and Kabardian, two minority languages spoken in Northern Caucasus. The Circassian languages exhibit ergative patterns in both case marking and the alignment of personal prefixes in the verb. Both these domains of grammar are studied extensively in the book, as are issues relating to ergative/absolutive marking in clauses with different types of verb (intransitive, transitive, labile, inversive). Another topic is ergative marking in complex constructions, including coordination and subordination. The monograph is the result of joint research conducted in Russia and Sweden. The basis for this research has been the project ‘Ergativity in the Circassian languages’ (with support from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences). The institutions involved are the Institute of Linguistics at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Lund University and the School of International Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) at Malmö University.
