Title:A comparison of person markers in Sayula and Oluta Popoluca

In the two Mixean languages described in this study, person is marked in the verb primarily by sets of prefixes that vary according to whether the clause is intransitive or transitive and whether it occurs in a syntactically independent or dependent construction. Features of interest in transitive verbs include a distinction between third and fourth person in both languages and the presence in Oluta of two different inverse suffixes, which mark the prefix person as the object rather than the subject. The similarity in person marking between these two languages suggests a fairly close linguistic relationship between them.
