Indexation of possessors in Gurindji is attested in two syntactically distinct constructions. In Inalienable Possessor Constructions the possessor and the possessum are syntactically juxtaposed and the possessor is neither internal nor external to the phrase headed by the possessum. In Prominent Alienable Possessor Constructions, the possessor is demonstrably internal to the NP yet nonetheless indexed at the clausal level. Prominent Alienable Possessor Constructions are most frequently encountered when a human possessor is contrastively focussed. Agreement with a non-local internal possessor is thus possible, providing it has sufficient discourse prominence.
