The Iranian languages, as a result of their unheard of time-depth of attestation, represent one of many only a few circumstances the place a shift from accusative alignment to split-ergativity is absolutely documented. but remarkably, inside historic syntax, the Iranian case has obtained merely very superficial assurance. This e-book presents the 1st in-depth remedy of alignment swap in Iranian, from previous Persian (5 C. BC) to the current. the 1st a part of the e-book examines the declare that ergativity in heart Iranian emerged from an previous Iranian agented passive building. This view is rejected in favour of a thought which hyperlinks the emergence of ergativity to exterior ownership. therefore the first mechanisms concerned isn't reanalysis, however the extension of a pre-existing development. The thought of Non-Canonical Subjecthood performs a pivotal position, which within the current account is associated with the semantics of what's termed oblique Participation. within the moment a part of the booklet, a comparative examine modern West Iranian is undertaken. it may be proven that through the next advancements within the morphosyntax, specified parts reminiscent of contract, nominal case marking, or the grammar of cliticisation, in reality built remarkably independently of each other. It used to be this de-coupling of sub-systems of the morphosyntax that resulted in the infamous multiplicity of alignment varieties in Iranian, a proven fact that additionally characterises past-tense alignments within the sister department of Indo-European, Indo-Aryan. in addition to information from greater than 20 Iranian languages, provided in a way that renders them obtainable to the non-specialist, there's huge dialogue of extra normal themes equivalent to the adequacy of sensible bills of adjustments in case platforms, discourse strain and the position of animacy, the inspiration of flow, and the query of alignment in early Indo-European.
