|Abstract:||The basic sentence structure in Athapaskan is subject-object-verb, as illustrated in Hare. The verb is inflected for aspect and subject agreement. If the object of a transitive verb is not stated as an independent NP and the subject is third person, the verb is also inflected for object agreement. Because the subject is third person the object is expressed by the 'obviative' or 'fourth person.|
