67 Experiencer constructions with ‘like’

This feature is described more fully in chapter 67.


Here we ask about the expressions of situations corresponding to English I like mangoes. 'Like' constructions involve two participants, an experiencer ('I') and a stimulus ('mangoes'). For this feature, we focus on the question whether the experiencer is expressed in the subject position (as in 'I like mangoes'), in the object position (as in 'Mangoes please me'), or if it is coded like a dative recipient (as in 'Magoes are pleasing to me'). In one language, both experiencer and stimulus are coded like objects.
