I'm curious to see everyone's answers to the following questions:
1. Does your language(s) distinguish between active ("X breaks Y"), middle
("X breaks (apart)"), and passive ("X is broken (by Y)")?
2. If the answer to #1 was "yes," what method(s) does your language(s) use
to make some/all of the above distinctions?
3. What method(s) does your language(s) use to distinguish between basic
nouns and verbs of the same root (i.e. "a hit" vs. "he hits")?
