The Valency Dictionary of Ladakhi verbs (Beta version) online

The dictionary covers about 95 to 99% of the verbs available to individual speakers. Two quite different dialects are represented: Domkhar (Shamskat, Lower Ladakh) and Gya (Kenhat, Upper Ladakh). At present (autumn 2015), it contains about 950 main entries and more than 1,900 sub-entries for meanings or collocations that go with a different case assignment, yielding almost 2,400 meaning-to-frame sets for two quite different dialects. These sets are accompanied by more than 23,000 full example sentences that show all obligatory as well as the semantically licensed facultative constituents. The dictionary also contains comments of the informants concerning the reasons for the choice of certain constructions, the semantic implications, or also acceptability judgements. The dictionary further focuses on the possibility of pattern variation, similar to the spray-load verb alternations in English.
