Like other modern Indo-Aryan languages, Gujarati and Marathi have a system of “split ergativity” whereby the present tense of transitive verbs uses a nominative/accusative construction, while their past tense uses an ergative construction. Differently from other Indo-Aryan languages, they have retained the historic distinction of three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter). I believe that in nom./acc. contexts neuter nouns have distinct forms in the nominative (no ending) and the accusative (Guj. suffix -ne). This contradicts the widely-held dogma that ALL Indo-European languages with a neuter gender use the same form for the nom. and acc. neuter. I would be grateful if speakers of Gujarati and Marathi could confirm this. Could you give me some grammatically valid sentences illustrating this distinction?
