Transitivity and locus map
This map shows whether translation equivalents of a given predicate (‘attack’, ‘be afraid’, etc.) belong to the transitive class in the languages of the sample. Non-transitive equivalents are further divided into three types based on their locus of intransitivity, i.e., whether the first argument (X), the second argument (Y), or both arguments are encoded by oblique devices. See How to read the data for more detail on Locus.
- Red: transitive
- Blue: X-locus (the first argument is encoded by an oblique device)
- Yellow: Y-locus (the second argument is encoded by an oblique device)
- Black: XY-locus (both arguments are encoded by oblique devices)
- Grey: no data
This map shows whether translation equivalents of two selected predicates (e.g., ‘be afraid’ and ‘avoid’) pattern together in terms of their valency class in individual languages. Note that the equivalents are considered belonging to the same valency class if and only if their first and second arguments are aligned (e.g., the classes tagged “DAT_NOM” and “NOM_DAT” in Russian are considered two different classes for the purposes of the project). See How to read the data for more detail on how language-specific valency patterns are identified.
- Red: the two equivalents belong to the same valency class
- Blue: the two equivalents belong to different valency classes
- Grey: no data (for at least one of the predicates)
