The current paper deals with the grammatical means of sentential actants expression in Mehweb dialect of Dargi (Nakh-Dagestanian language family). The research is also focused on the possibilities for case-marking of logical subject and distant class agreement.
The Mehweb language is an isolated one-village language of the Dargwa group (Nakh-Daghestanian). Mehweb speakers moved outside the Dargwa-speaking area and now they are located near the Avar and Lak speakers. Many authors treated Mehweb specific features as archaic. In this paper I argue that some features of the Mehweb consonant system shows many innovations which could be partly explained by contacts with other languages and specific Mehweb internal processes.
