The Real-World Colour of the Dative Alternation.
Language Sciences, v23 n4-5 p525-50 Jul-Sep 2001
Challenges assumptions regarding dative alternation and proposes an account in terms of one general constraint of what makes a verb a possible verb, which operates over verb-specific conceptual information. Central to the proposal is the assumption that the different forms of dative verbs do not only encode different conceptual representations of events, but they also encode different perspectives on the event.
