Gibeon

(gĭb`ēən), ancient town, 5 mi (8 km) NNW of Jerusalem. The Book of Joshua relates that its inhabitants established a treaty with the invading Israelites, resulting in their servitude to Israel. According to legend, the sun stood still in Gibeon while Israel battled the AmoritesAmorites
, a people of Canaan. There is evidence of them in Babylonia, where in the 19th cent. B.C. they established under their patronage the first dynasty at Babylon. The most powerful king of this dynasty, Hammurabi, put an end (18th cent. B.C.

Siguiendo lo propuesto por Givon (2001: 327), los sistemas de evidenciales permiten codificar la fuente de informacion o evidencia disponible para la asercion.
Embora fatores de ordem cognitiva ja estivessem na agenda funcionalista norte-americana classica, como os atinentes a iconicidade e a marcacao, nos termos de Givon (1995, 1979), o refinamento desses fatores ganha relevo no seculo XXI, com a explicitacao de propriedades contextuais e sua relacao com processos cognitivos, no entendimento de que a cognicao, derivada de pressoes interacionais e da experiencia sociohistorica, e manifestada contextualmente.
Para Givon (1983, 1984, 1992), la DR puede ser asociada con dos fenomenos, la Accesibilidad y la Topicalidad, la primera entendida como una propiedad de los referentes anaforicos, relacionada con su grado de disponibilidad en una representacion mental preexistente.
Situandonos ya mas concretamente en la linea del funcionalismo tipologico de Givon (2001), se concibe que los participantes del evento se codifican mediante funciones gramaticales en la clausula.
Con este contexto, y siguiendo la posicion de Talmy Givon (17) de que una oracion activa transitiva en la que el objeto, sea directo o indirecto, suele presentar mayor prominencia comunicativa que el sujeto, y este comportamiento discursivo aparece formalmente manifestado en la oracion, constituye una construccion activa inversa, adopto la posicion de que la oracion con objeto directo referencial antepuesto al verbo y duplicada en el verbo con un clitico de acusativo formaliza la manifestacion de una oracion activa inversa en espanol (18), posicion que se ve reforzada por el orden de constituyentes OVS, aunque para el espanol el esquema mas preciso seria OV(S), que de acuerdo con Givon (19) es un orden caracteristico de la inversa.
An example like (3) below from Givon and Yang (1994: 120) shows that the subject of the get-passive is in some way responsible for his own misfortune, while no such inference can be drawn about the subject of the get-passive:

The term 'categorial space' describes the focus of the paper with a term used by Givon (1993) in his prototype-based description of word-classes in English.
In contrast, two recent studies that were performed in non-European populations by Givon et al.
Givon (2001a: 417) propone que, en el ingles, existen cuatro estrategias gramaticales para expresar referencias anaforicas: el cero anaforico, los pronombres anaforicos atonos, los pronombres independientes tonicos, y los sintagmas nominales completos definidos.
Neste trabalho, focalizamos a perspectiva do funcionalismo da Costa-Oeste dos Estados Unidos, a qual se refere a um movimento que surgiu na decada de 1970 a partir dos trabalhos de um grupo de pesquisadores, em sua maioria da California, como Givon, Thompson, Chafe e Hopper.
