ImageAbout This Case File: The AQ response for Tuki has gone through follow-up elicitation. We still expect to add new data to the AQ response in the next few months as analytic questions are explored, and so users should pay attention to the version number of this AQ response for any citation. The elicitation document employed is AQ 2.2. The data for Tuki is entered into the database and the glossing is more precise in the database than in the AQR. In addition, this case file includes a book manuscript Biloa (2011), that is an extensive exploration of Tuki from the perspective of generative syntax.
