This chapter discusses a particular type of deponency that is found in several languages of the Iwaidjan family and involves pseudo-argument affixes on the verb. The chapter focuses on two closely related languages, Iwaidja and Ilgar/Garig, which share about eighty percent vocabulary. The uses of agreement of the pseudo-argument, the standard use of argument agreement, and the conjugational types are discussed as well.

Keywords:   deponency, Iwaidjan family, Ilgar, Garig, Iwaidja, argument agreement, conjugational types
