Dear Arnold,

This paper and references on the availability of argument structures,
alienable vs. inalienable possessions, and body representation may be of
interest to you: Devylder, S. (2017). Cutting and Breaking the Embodied
Self. CogniTextes [on line], Volume 16 | 2017.

In open access here: https://journals.openedition.org/cognitextes/886.

My colleagues and I are also finalizing two manuscripts on body
representation in French, Indonesian, and Japanese. For one of the studies
we used a stimuli that consisted of a series of people with (photoshopped)
injuries in various contexts that participants had to describe. The data we
collected may also be relevant to your interests and we'd happy to share
our data and results with you at some point.

All the best,
