A Text Analysis of the English Double Genitive.
Christianson, Kiel
IRAL, v35 n2 p99-113 1997
Examines through a text analysis of spoken and written discourse the meaning and function of the double genitive (DG) in English in comparison to the inflected preposed genitive. The study shows the DG to possess unique and specific pragmatic functions not adequately described for nonnative students. (22 references) (Author/CK)
