Subject:        Summary: Ditransitives

A few weeks back I asked for references to examples of ditransitive
verbs.  This is a summary of the replies I received. Useful
information came from Karin Verspoor, Marie Egan, Kevin Lemoine,
Charles Scott, Simon Musgrave, Marilyn Silva, and Mike Maxwell.

Quirk, Greenbaum, Leech, & Svartvik (1985). A comprehensive grammar of
the English Language, pp 1208 ff.

preliminary investigation. Chicago: University of Chicago
press. (Mentioned several times)

Jovanovich. (Especially Vol 1, p 330, ad Vol 2 p 302).

argument structure. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.

Thanks to all for their help.
