Opposition on the basis of static ~ dynamic determines the specificity of the entire grammatical structure of the Avar language, including the formation of the causative.
The specificity of the formation of the causative by labile verbs in the Avar language is that only a form repre-senting the semantics of an action is capable of expressing direct or intentional causation, and a form repre-senting the semantics of a state expresses only an unintentional causation.
