Possessive morphology as subject-indexing in the languages of the Bougainville region

Possessive morphology marking owners or custodians may be used as a source of subject-indexing marking actors or agents in the languages surrounding the Bougainville region of Papua New Guinea. The Turning Owners into Actors Database encodes data from nine different language phenomena in eight different languages: Bannoni, Halia, Kokota, Nehan, Sisiqa, Solos, Torau and Vangunu.
