A Question of Attestation

Does anyone happen to know of any split-S language, where it is the noun, rather than the verb, that decides what case the intransitive subject takes?

Unrelated idea: split-S-like with regards to dechtichaetiativity.

  1. Well, there are obviously animacy hierarchies, which effectively do this. Now, you might not call them 'split-S' in the normal sense, but if the verb isn't determining the splot it's not split-S in the normal sense anyway.
