External possessors and related constructions in Functional Discourse Grammar
This chapter is concerned with indirect object (or dative) external possessors and related constructions in Dutch. The related constructions are on the one hand other possessive constructions and on the other hand other indirect object constructions. The central question is what the semantic and pragmatic contribution of these constructions is and how these constructions can be adequately modelled in Functional Discourse Grammar. To account for the semantic-syntactic characteristics, the division between the Representational Level and the Interpersonal Level in Functional Discourse Grammar is invoked.
