Cross-linguistic Argument Structure
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
In a pilot to a larger project, I would be interested in knowing more
about the argument structure of the verb ''to sacrifice'' in various
languages. More specifically, whether the structure of the following
three sentences run in parallel:
(1) John sacrificed food to the ancestors.
(2) John gave food to the elders.
(3) John told a story to his parents.
For instance, I already know that the dative object of (3) in Dutch is
expressed with a different preposition.
Any information, data, references and hints are very welcome.
Thank you in advance,
