I didn't know this name! D'you know an example of tripartite language?

Nope, although that'd be neat :)) .

That's only for Split-S?
I:AGT see the fox:PAT
I:AGT run (willingly).
I:PAT run (I can't control my legs!!!! ;))) ).
Do I understand the concept correctly?
And for trigger languages and languages based on animacy:
I:TRG see:AGT the fox:PAT ("as for me, I see the fox")
I:AGT see:PAT the fox:TRG ("as for the fox, it is seen by me")
I see the fox (NO MARKING)
The fox sees:INV me. (INVERSE MARKING)
