IntPfrCC: Causatives are expressed through the use of a nonfinite verb form, special verbal mood, and either a verbal case affix or a special particle in the clause expressing the caused event. This type is known as an intentional causative construction.

In Synja Khanty, it is common to express causation periphrastically (S. O., F. L.). The main verb of the construction is the pārla ‘order’, which is typically in the determinate conjugation. The caused event is in the infinitive. In the periphrastic causal construction (3)-(4), the causer and the causee take the nominal case (S. O., F. L.).
