The thesis Verbal morphosyntax and three-participant events in Sudest, an Oceanic language of Papua New Guinea investigates the word and sentence structure of the Sudest language with a particular emphasis on the expression of events such as ‘give’, ‘take’, ‘feed’, and ‘show’. The thesis is based on language data collected during fieldwork on the islands of Vanatɨna and Yeina, where Sudest is spoken by approximately 3,800 people. The thesis presents the most detailed study of the language to date.
