|Abstract:||The issue of Philippine voice systems and morphosyntactic alignment is a controversial one and has implications not just for typological descriptions of languages but also for the theories of grammatical relations and voice. I argue that the ergative analysis does not provide an optimal description of grammatical relations in Western Subanon, a less studied Philippine language. By looking at Subanon, I hope to add to the wider debate of Philippine voice.|
