Abstract

This study provides a descriptive account of differential object marking (DOM) in the (endangered) Tver Karelian variety of the Karelian language. DOM in Tver Karelian is primarily based on the referential boundedness of a verb phrase, which in turn is determined according to the divisibility and cumulativity of the referents of the verbal and nominal predicates of the verb phrase in question. In addition to boundedness, DOM in Tver Karelian is also affected by the word class of a given object (noun or pronoun), as well as verbal ­morphology and semantics.
