Abstract [en]

In this paper, we analyse and describe the HAVE-constructions in South Saami (Saamic, Uralic), from a comparative perspective with other Saamic and Uralic languages. The Saamic languages can be divided into three subgroups: in the first, HAVE is expressed with a verb meaning ‘to be’; the second has a HAVE-construction based on a verb ‘to have’ and one on the verb ‘to be’. The third subgroup comprises only of South Saami, which has three HAVE-constructions, one based on the verb ‘to have’ and two on the verb ‘to be’. South Saami is also unique among Saamic languages in that it has a HAVE-construction based on the verb ‘to be’ where the possessor in the genitive.
