65 Raining constructions

Description

Meteorological events are not expressed uniformly across languages, and they also exhibit interesting variation in the APiCS languages, which is the focus of the present feature. Since languages often code different meteorological events ('the sun in shining', 'it is raining', 'there is a thunderstorm', etc.) with different syntactic constructions, we consider exclusively the situation 'it is raining'.
