Evidentiality in Akha
Research output: Contribution to conference › Paper, not in proceeding
In the Akha language - a Tibeto-Burman language - marking of evidentiality is obligatory. The evidential system marks whether a statement is based on factual knowledge or inferred from seeing, hearing or feeling. It also marks whether the speaker makes a statement without being asked or as a result of a question or a reaction to something happening. The evidentials are marked by high tone for non-past or low tone for past events.
