Abstract
This paper addresses the semantic relations between different constructions of ’possessional transfer’ in Dutch by zooming in on a specific morphological class of dispossession verbs, viz. verbs with the prefix ont- ‘away’, such as ontnemen ‘take away’, ontfutselen ‘filch, fish out of’, onttrekken ‘extract, withdraw’, etc. A database with several thousands of attested ont-examples from various corpora of present-day written Dutch will serve as the starting point for an investigation of their constructional possibilities and preferences: the ont-verbs will be shown to cluster into a number of subclasses in terms of alternation possibilities. In addition, a comparison of these present-day Dutch results with data from a diachronic corpus of 19th century Dutch will reveal a number of lexicogrammatical shifts which seem to be part of a polarization tendency...
