Subject: zich & zichzelf in Dutch Sentences
E-mail this message to a friend
I need the help of native speakers of Dutch to let me know whether
sentences (1) through (8) are acceptable or unacceptable (or probably
degraded) in Dutch. The answers to my query will help with an article
on control and binding I'm working on. My e-mail address is
(1) John bewondert zichzelf.
(2) John bewondert zich.
(3) Ze zag zichzelf in de spiegel.
(4) Ze zag zich in de spiegel
In a museum, John saw a statue of himself depicting him as a knight:
(5) John bewondert zichzelf als standbeeld/ ridder.
(6) John bewondert zich als standbeeld/ ridder.
(7) Ze zag zichzelf als een standbeeld.
(8) Ze zag zich als een standbeeld.
Subject Language(s): Dutch (nld)

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
