Abstract

This paper discusses the grammatical categories of the Classical Tibetan verbs. Morphologically, Classical Tibetan verbs can be categorized into tense, mode, valence and aspect, while the category of Ergative verb VS. unergative verbs are based on syntactical distribution, which should replace the category of transitive VS. intransitive contrast. The category of Valence is traditionally referred as causative and non-causative, which is not a very accurate term.
