Bukiyip (ISO 639-3: ape, Glottolog: buki1249)
The verb in Bukiyip indexes S, A, and P arguments. The position of indexes varies depending on the verb class (Conrad and Wogiga 1991: 25–33). The following transitive classes are distinguished:
It is impossible to identify one major position of P indexes, as both class 2 and 4 (suffixes), as well as class 3 (prefixes) are large in number, so code as 1 for both GB093 and GB094.
Monoken da wo ny-ú-klipw-e ye? why therefore NEG 2SG.SBJ-IRR-tell-1SG.OBJ NEG ‘Why didn't you tell me?’ (Conrad & Wogiga 1991: 42)
Korowai (ISO 639-3: khe, Glottolog: koro1312)
Independent verb forms index subject (S and A) person-number, status, mood, and aspect. They are used in independent (final) clauses, subordinate clauses, and chained (medial) clauses. Code as 0 as there is no indexing of the P argument on the verb (see de Vries & van Enk 1997: 87–90, 183).
