Schema: 1 2 subj[1].obj[2].V

# Coding set Argument type
1 subj.V A
2 obj.V P

Core arguments are unmarked for case. In verbal cross-referencing (indices) of transitive verbs, A affixes are normally placed before P markers but when it comes to the interaction of first and second person participants there is also a number of fusional markers (A+P), which are subject to considerable dialectal variation. The third person (A/P) is always zero-marked.
