Causation of body posture agentive intransitive verbs such as a-k’om- ‘make stand’, aggaddäm- ‘make lie down’, ant’ärarr- ‘make stretch’ take the morpheme a-. The verb a-k’oyy- ‘make wait’ is also possible. The morpheme a- is also affixed to transitive verbs of ingestive meanings. These verbs are often grouped together with intransitives and behave syntactically in many respects as intransitives (see also Chapter 8). 6a. tämari-u 6b. säw-ïyye-u 7a. lïj-u 7b. ’ (6a) and (7a) show transitive structures in which tämari-u ‘the student’ in (16a) and lïj-u ‘the boy’ in (7a) are agentive subjects.

In a single causative structure, if one accusative constituent is overt and there 42 The Causative in Amharic is object agreement on the verb, then, the pronominal object on the verb agrees either with the causee or with the patient. If the object pronominal agrees with the causee, it is a causative of an active event; but, if the object on the verb agrees with the patient, it is a causative of a passive event.
