Title: Differentielle Objektmarkierung bei unbelebten Objekten im Spanischen [Differential Object Marking with Inanimate Objects in Spanish]
Written By: Marco García García
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/183746?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistische Arbeiten 545
Description:

When and why are direct objects in Spanish marked with an “a”? This study investigates this question by considering inanimate objects that are normally unmarked, butrequire marking when combined with a small, stable class of verbs. Presenting an analysis of semantic roles, the author shows that diffential object marking in Spanish is determined not only by nominal individualization properties such as animacy and definiteness but also by the verbal action that is expressed.
