Focusing on categories (a), (c), and (d), Malchukov suggests that an explanation of voice polysemies may partly reside in shared syntactic features, which he summarizes in the form of a semantic map.

In each case the vowel stem appears derived, but which stem is transitive and which is intransitive is unpredictable. These alternations are mastered only at later stages of first language acquisition (see Murasugi this volume), but they are consistently observed with minor variation across Japanese languages and dialects. Frellesvig and Whitman reconstruct in this chapter a diachronic source for these stem-shape-based transitivity alternations, positing an older layer of verbal derivation in Japanese involving Verb-Verb patterns where V2 was attached directly to the basic stem (root) of V1, unlike later stages of the language where verbal derivation requires a derived stem (primarily the infinitive) of V1.
