Example text

As pointed out by an anonymous reviewer, one still wonders why elements other than the semipredicatives, and in particular incontrovertible NPs, cannot also be directly assigned dative. My answer was the same as why PRO is not assigned dative in contexts where the semipredicatives are: the relevant contrast is one which distinguishes arguments from adjuncts. In diverse languages, time, frequency, and distance phrase nominal adjuncts can freely receive structural case in contexts where argumental expressions cannot.
