"Woods is to be commended for establishing a new precedent for analyzing Sumerian grammar which will hopefully become a model for future studies of the language."

The verbal grammatical category of voice pertains to the relationship between syntactic roles (subject, direct object) and semantic roles (agent, patient, experiencer, beneficiary, recipient). Ancient Greek has three morphologically distinct voice categories. The active voice is marked by act
Voicing refers to an assimilative process by which a voiceless sound becomes voiced; the term can also be used in reference to the feature [voice], which involves vibration of the vocal cords. Voicing is a process whereby a consonant changes from voiceless to voiced (the reverse is called devoicing

However, accumulating empirical evidence has made it clear that segmental and intonational aspects of speech are inherently connected. For intonation to be produced, voiced
Ancient Greek has three morphologically distinct voice categories: the active voice, the middle voice and the passive voice. The act. and mid. voices are distinguished by contrasting sets of personal endings. The passive voice is marked by a special morpheme -thē- or -ē- and only occurs in the

Southern Theory, however, has not been the first attempt to destabilise clear-cut, potentially unscientific, and biased knowledge systems and hierarchies.

Another characteristic feature of the Northern Peruvian Quechua varieties is the development of voiced fricatives from proto
