This paper aims to describe the variations in the syntactic construction of the multiword verb igi bar 'to look at something/somebody'. The paper includes two Appendices which present the evidence on which its conclusions are based, which are that the grammatical variations of this expression can be accounted for by referring to influence from Akkadian i.e. the akkadization of Sumerian.
