This type includes the north-west Caucasian, Bantu and various Amerind languages. "Excentric" languages, on the other hand, are those in which the verb is restricted to a lexeme, possibly endowed with morphemes of tense/aspect/ mood, but with no affixes referring to actant NPs, the latter being equipped with their own case suffixes or adpositions; examples include Chinese, Japanese and south-east Asian languages.
