520    This is a study of processes of structural and functional 
       diversification of the uses of three cognate verbs across 
       the Indo-Iranian language family: "do/make", "be/become", 
       and "give". First, this study identifies over sixty 
       distinct construction types in which these verbs are used,
       including complex predicate constructions, nominal 
       predication constructions, serial verb constructions, and 
       several distinct auxiliary constructions. Since the sets 
       of verbs studied here are cognates, and share a common 
       source, crosslinguistic differences in their uses are the 
       result of grammatical change, and especially shared and 
       parallel innovations of similar uses 
520    Then, this study presents a taxonomy of different complex 
       predication types with "do/make", and shows that there are
       general patterns in the deployment of different types of 
       complex predication to express different types of 
       situations. These patterns exhibit "transitivity 
       prominence" previously identified by typologists with 
       "heavy" or "lexical" verbs. This study then shows that 
       these patterns are the result of several distinct pathways
       of grammatical change, often motivated by analogy to 
       existing constructions, giving raise to different types of
       N-V complex predication constructions 
520    Then, this study shows that despite the fact that Indo-
       Iranian speakers can potentially deploy distinct 
       constructions to encode each of the six nominal 
       predication functions, sets of such functions are often co
       -expressed by the same structural coding means, especially
       clauses with cognate "be/become" verbs. This study uses a 
       novel method, based on bipartite network graphs, to 
       compare of the degree to which nominal predication 
       functions are co-expressed in different languages 
520    Finally, this study shows that the three sets of cognate 
       verbs are more likely to be used similarity within 
       branches and subbranches of Indo-Iranian than across 
       branches. The scope of this branches, however, is 
       different for different verbs: "do/make" and "give" behave
       more similarly in languages which belong to the same major
       branch, Iranian or Indo-Aryan, but "be/become" clusters 
       are at different levels of subbranching. This is the 
       result of the different types of innovations attested with
       these verbs: reanalysis and actualization motivated by 
       analogy with "do/make" and "give", and metaphorical and 
       metonymy extensions with "be/become"
