Siwi addressee agreement and demonstrative typology

Abstract : Siwi shows gender/number agreement of medial demonstratives with the addressee. Such phenomena are cross-linguistically very rarely reported, and are not discussed in major surveys of the typology of demonstratives. However, within person-oriented demonstrative systems, such marking amounts to an iconic representation of addressee anchoring. The pragmatics of Siwi demonstratives thus cast light on the nature of the mapping from person to place that such systems reflect. Comparative eastern Berber data suggests that demonstrative addressee agreement may be more widespread than the literature reflects.
