Hi niri etorri h-atzai-t You-A me-D arrived you-is-me "You have come to me" There are also inflected forms that contain absolutive and ergative agree­ ment clitics (5a, b, c), and forms that contain absolutive, ergative and dative clitics (7a). There is an important restriction that applies to this last group, however. Inflected forms with three agreement clitics can only have third person agree­ ment in the absolutive (7a). It is not possible to have inflected verbs that agree with three arguments if the absolutive agreement is first or second person.

I will refer to the inflected forms as 'incorporated', and will reserve the name 'synthetic' for the lexical verbs that have the ability to inflect in an incorporated fashion. 10 30 ITZIARLAKA b. 1 The Aspect Projection The crucial factor that distinguishes a non-incorporated form like (13a) from a synthetic one like (13b), besides their distinct morphology, is the verbal aspect. Whereas the form (13a) is perfective, the form in (13b) is punctual, non-perfective. Non-incorporated forms have a morpheme attached to the end of the verb (the morpheme i in (13a), for example).

Thus, for instance, in an elliptical negative reply, it is not possible to use the NPI ezer "anything" alone in Basque, much like in English. ": (ii) a. Zer ikusi duzu? b. *ezer c. ' ("nothing") "nothing" 34 ITZIARLAKA (19) * [NegP ez duti [lpP r o x) esan y ] neg have-me said ("I haven't said anything") ezer j anything Negative sentences involving an incorporated verb are identical to the one in (17b), except for the fact that the verb does not stay inside the AspP, but it raises to Inn and from there it raises to Neg together with Infl.
