Possessors can participate in switch-reference (SR) such that a same-subject (SS) marker, an aspectual marker in West Greenlandic, tracks the identity of the possessor of one subject and another subject, or the identity of possessors across two disjoint subjects. Different third person referents in possession are indexed by regular third person possessive affixes and reflexive possessive affixes.
