This study aims to give a systematic and comprehensive description of the
constructions involved in three important types of alternation: the
locative alternation, which is by far the most researched of the three, the
image impression alternation and the material/product alternation. The
author looks at the constructions as part of an alternation, but also looks
beyond the alternations, and analyzes and describes the constructions in
their own right. They are analyzed as three-participant constructions with
relational complements, construing causation of the three main subtypes of
relations, namely intensive, circumstantial and possessive relations.
Particular attention is paid to the concept of holicity, to the status of
the prepositional phrase, and to collocational properties, which play a key
role in the decision as to which alternate should be regarded as the
unmarked one within its construction paradigm. The approach taken is
inspired by systemic functional grammar and can broadly be characterized as
