Abstract: Grammatical functions have been a topic of formal syntactic investigation within Austronesian languages now for some time. In particular, debates have traditionally raged over the status of grammatical functions within Philippine-type languages. Regarding these languages, much of the discussion has focussed on whether these languages do or do not have a syntactic subject, see for instance Kroeger (1993) and Schachter (1976). However, within these debates the status of non-subject grammatical functions has often been marginalised or ignored. This thesis seeks to rectify this situation somewhat. It is a syntactic investigation into the properties and construal of grammatical functions in Tolaki, an Austronesian language of central Indonesia, with a particular, though not exclusive, interest in non-subject grammatical functions.
