Alternative explanations for the phenomena are advanced, based on information structure, semantics and the impact on synchrony of diachronic change. The picture that emerges is one of a complex but interrelated set of causalities that simple dichotomies such as that enshrined in the unaccusative-unergative contrast do no more than label."@en ;
