The book offers an extensive discussion of previous approaches to ergativity. It analyzes four Indo-Aryan languages- Asamiya, Nepali, Rajasthani and Kashmiri- on the basis of text corpora. Examples from other Indo-Aryan languages are also adduced. The book is a thorough synchronic study of alignment patterns in Indo-Aryan languages."@en ;
