C142-1: «Eles fizeram
da nossa aldeia um cemitério», contou uma velha.
This sentence represented in CG format is the following:
Eles [ele] PERS M 3P NOM @SUBJ>
Two things worth noting:
1) velha maintained the morphological tag ADJ, but the tag <n> was added to indicate that the adjective is used as a noun, as was explained in C165-6.
2) contou is in fact the finite main verb, and being an speech verb, it requires a direct object, in this case, a clause. Since the subordinating conjunction que is absent, the external function is tagged in the finite main verb of the accusative clause (fizeram). For further details go to C165-5.
