Operators may appear between the actor and the undergoer in Scottish Gaelic, as shown in (30), with the actor e and the undergoer fìona: (30) Tha e ag òl fìon-a.

The tense operator is assigned a position in the middle field. Since it is assigned a place before any non-hierarchical element it must be in the absolute PM position. Further operators are then expressed relative to this position: the relative tense expression been is in PM+1, the progressive -ing form is in PM+2. Note that the tensed verb cannot be in PI+1 since it that case it would have been positioned after the subject had been located in PI, which is impossible as the subject will receive its position later in the process of non-­hierarchical ordering.
