Aimée Lahaussois (Laboratoire HTL Histoire des théories linguistiques, Paris)


Thulung, a Kiranti language (Sino-Tibetan/Trans-Himalayan, Eastern Nepal), has a number of complex predicates, mostly used for the expression of emotions and moods, which are made up of a body part (including abstract notions, such as mind and energy) plus verb. An example from Thulung is given in (1):

(1)       gu-ka               a:ma                nʌ:       khu-irʉ

            3SG-ERG       1SG.POSS      mind    steal-3SG>3SG.PST

            ‘I was deceived by him.’ [lit. He stole my mind]

In the Mainland Southeast Asia linguistic area, these types of predicates are labeled psycho-collocations (Matisoff 1986; Vittrant 2013; Vittrant & Watkins 2019), and they constitute an important areal feature. Similarly constructed expressions form a significant part of the lexical repertoire of Kiranti languages, even though they have rarely been described for these languages (Bickel 1997 is a notable exception).
In this talk, I will describe the 35 psycho-collocations I have collected in Thulung, presenting the range of body parts; the subtypes of psycho-collocations; the morphosyntactic patterns exhibited, looking specifically at the coding of the body part and of the experiencer in these expressions.
