I gave examples of the waw-consecutive and the serial-verb earlier, but: I forgot to include examples about switch-reference. Here is a place for a simple definition and discussion: eference.htm Some examples are discussed in Also, each one of and and and and s/walker.htm all have examples and discussions of switch-reference systems, though I don't know which ones are better for the purposes of illustrating my question. (Or for that matter, whether any of them contains the best available answer; if one of them does, either "the best available answer" is pretty hard to understand, is not complete yet, or takes an awfully long time to read --- probably all three.) Don't look at all of them if you don't have the time. ----- I hope somebody has fun with this. Thank you. Tom H.C. in MI
