Length of East Caucasian subject indexes: a quantative research

P. 258-282.

In this article I present a connection between frequency and length of person-number indexes via two independent researches: token frequency obtained from the Universal Dependencies’ treebanks and type frequency gathered within a typological study. After introducing the results of those two studies, I will present East Caucasian data. I show that the unusual history of person-number indexes in these languages leads to violations of the tendencies.
