In most cases, it marks whether the subject of the verb in one clause is coreferent with that of the previous clause, or of a subordinate clause to the matrix (main) clause that is dominating it. CONTENTS* 1 Meanings of switch-reference * 1.1 Non-subject switch-reference * 2 Non-canonical switch-reference * 3 Form of switch-reference markers * 4 Distribution of switch-reference * 5 Notes * 6 References MEANINGS OF SWITCH-REFERENCEThe basic distinction made by a switch-reference system is whether the following clause has the same subject (SS) or a different subject (DS). That is known as CANONICAL SWITCH-REFERENCE. For purposes of switch-reference, subject is defined as it is for languages with a nominative–accusative alignment: a subject is the sole argument of an intransitive clause or the agent of a transitive one. It holds even in languages with a high degree of ergativity . The Washo language of California and Nevada exhibits a switch-reference system. When the subject of one verb is the same as the subject of the following verb, the verb takes no switch-reference marker

For each "scene", the player is only given one life to complete the objective — to take a certain number of pictures of the boss without being hit in a limited amount of time. To take pictures, the film must be fully loaded into the camera (100%). The player can move at three speeds, the normal speed, the focused speed, and a super-focused speed which also allows for high speed film loading

Book
I . It is track six on the second disc, one of the three songs from that disc whose lyrics are printed in the album booklet, and is four minutes and forty-nine seconds in length.

Dal Segno
In music notation , DAL SEGNO (/ˌdæl ˈseɪnjoʊ/ or /ˈsɛɡnoʊ/ ; Italian pronunciation: ), often abbreviated D.S., is used as a navigation marker. From Italian for "from the sign," D.S. appears in sheet music and instructs a musician to repeat a passage starting from the sign shown at right, sometimes called the "segno" in English. Two common variants: * D.S. AL CODA instructs the musician to go back to the sign, and when _Al coda_ or _To coda_ is reached jump to the coda symbol. * D.S. AL FINE instructs the musician to go back to the sign, and end the piece at the measure marked _fine_.The Italian term 'dal segno' literally means 'from the sign.' In most music you will see either D.S. al Fine (which means 'go back to the 𝄋 sign and play the music again until you come to the bar marked Fine, then stop') or D.S. al Coda (which means 'go back to the 𝄋 sign and play the music again until you come to the bar marked To Coda, then jump to the coda'). ...You may also see simply...D.S. in the final bar of a score, which means to repeat from...the 𝄋 sign...then stop at the end. In music, these instructions always appear at the end of the bar from which you have to jump back (either to the 𝄋 sign or to the start of the piece). AL SEGNO indicates that the player should go to the sign. DA CAPO AL SEGNO (D.C

Citroën sold 1,455,746 examples, including 1,330,755 built at the manufacturer's Paris

Quai André- Citroën production plant.
