Scope versus ordering of operations: causativisation and ordering of valency-changing operations in Adyghe

P. 53-81.

In the article semantic ordering of valency-changing operations in Adyghe is analyzed. The analysis is focused mainly on the ordering of the causativization with respect to other valency change types. It turns out that causativization, according to morphosyntactic tests, almost always follows any other valency-changing operation.

On the other hand, semantic scope turns out to be distinct from the ordering of derivations. Even when causativization precedes another valency-changing operation, it is not the case that the causative marker is included into the scope of another marker.
