Like some other Indic languages, Bajjika has a complex agreement system in which ‘nominative’ and ‘non-nominative’ agreement patterns can be distinguished. Nominative agreement is always with the subject, and non-nominative agreement is controlled by some other referential element. Intransitive verbs can exhibit nominative agreement with their sole argument, or non-nominative agreement with another element. Transitive verbs can exhibit either agreement pattern, or both simultaneously (i.e. double agreement). There is also some evidence to suggest that allocutives may be indexed using double agreement on intransitives. Possessors can also control non-nominative agreement, when the possessor of the subject or object. Preliminary evidence suggests that referential conditions are important in determining when internal possessors are prominent.
