Usage notes

Marks the subject of a transitive verb in passive Object–verb–subject (OVS) statements, as well as Subject–object–verb (SOV) sentences infrequently; also found in appositional phrases. When a verb is intransitive, the subject assumes the unmarked nominative or absolutive form. For examples, please see Project:Grammar/Syntax.

Pronouns use a nominative-accusative system, and therefore do not use the ergative case (unless they are used in apposition).

A related suffix, -erij, denotes that the referent is associated with the subsequent phrase. This occurs in certain sentences with two or more subjects/objects; see also zol and ten.
