Приименные посессивные конструкции в тантынском даргинском

The paper presents a description and a discussion of adnominal possessive constructions in Tanti Dargwa, a Northeast Caucasian language spoken in Daghestan. While at first glance these constructions look quite typical for the family, on a closer inspection it turns out that they display at least two typologically non-trivial phenomena. First, Tanti Dargwa manifests a dedicated construction referring to the "annulated" possessive relation (like my forme house). Second, the language shows a specific pattern whereby the possessum may take the noun class of the possessor and control agreement in accordance to this assignment.
