Case-Assignment in Slavic
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am a Ph.D. student of linguistics and I am working on certain aspects of
Case-assignment in Slavic languages. I would like to ask what is the Case
assigned by the verbs meaning ''to want'', ''to ask for'', ''to demand'',
''to deserve'', ''to seek'' and ''to avoid'' in different Slavic languages.
For instance, in Russian these verbs may assign either accusative or
a. On prosit vnimania / knigu.
he asks attention(gen)/book(acc)
He asks for attention / a book.
b. Dima iščet Lenu / priključenij.
Dima seek Lena(acc) / adventures (gen)
Dima is seeking Lena / adventures.
However, I have been told that in Polish these verbs obligatorily take
genitive objects. What is the state of affairs in other Slavic languages?
Thanking you in advance,
