Wednesday, May 15 12:00 noon - 01:00 pm

Social Science Symposium Series: Dr. David Hargreaves Verb Conjugation as Cultural Practice in Kathmandu Newar (Tibeto-Burman, Nepal) The topic of verb conjugation?the encoding of person, number, tense, etc., on the verb?often elicits a collective yawn from social scientists. But consider?as cultural practice, grammatically obligatory in almost every utterance, it requires social agents to refer to one another, categorizing individual actions and social roles in face-to-face speech. In this talk, I introduce the verb system of Kathmandu Newar (Nepal), where verb conjugations encode whether an action is performed intentionally (or not), and which interlocutors have (or don?t have) privileged (vs. public) knowledge of the intention. This type of system is rare in languages of the world, attested only in the Nepal Himalayas/Tibetan Plateau, the Caucasus region, Papua New Guinea and Amazon/Andean South America.
