Shklovsky and Sudo (2014) propose a syntactic analysis of Uyghur indexical shift, a process by which embedded indexicals such as the counterparts of you and I are interpreted relative to the reported context, as opposed to the present discourse context. Introducing novel data, I offer an alternative analysis: namely, that there are two distinct types of tensed embedded clause that differ in clause structure, size, and the functional heads present within the structure. I correlate these properties with case, agreement, and indexical shift.
