Zusammenfassung
Whitesands is an under-described Oceanic language belonging to the Southern Vanuatu sub-family. Like other languages in the Southern Vanuatu family it utilises a system of `switch reference' that has been called "Echo Subject" (ES) (Lynch 1983, Crowely 2002). This paper investigates the underlying syntactic properties of the Echo Subject system in Whitesands. We conclude that there are features of the system that are formally complex but also subject to pragmatic influence.
