dc.description.abstract In some Salish languages, certain logically possible combinations of persons in transitive clauses are ungrammatical. For example, Halkomelem disallows the co-occurrence of 3rd subject and 2nd object morphology. While previous accounts have attributed these gaps to the person hierarchy (c.f. Aissen 1999), we show that some of these gaps are opposite of what the person hierarchy would predict and thus require a different analysis. In Nɬeʔkepmxcin, for example, clauses with 1 pI subject and 3rd object morphology are ungrammatical. We show that it is the co-occurrence of two agreement suffixes in the same structural position that gives rise to person-based gaps. When subject agreement is in a different structural position as object agreement, no personbased gaps are attested. Thus, in Lushootseed, a language with only subject clitics, there are no constraints on person combinations. en
