Some time ago I posted a question on Case-assignment by verbs meaning to
want, to ask for, to demand, to deserve, to seek and to avoid in different
Slavic languages. The facts appear to be the following:
In Polish and Lithuanian (a Baltic language) these verbs obligatorily
assign genitive Case.
In Russian, Ukrainian and Slovenian the verbs can take either genitive or
Finally, in Serbo-Croatian they normally assign accusative Case.
I would like to thank James Lavine, Donka Torov, Barbara Partee, Galina
Gordishevsky, Boban Arsenijevic, Lanko Marusic, Steve Hewitt, Tanja
Samardzic and Mirjana N. Dedaic for their help.
