In this feature (based on WALS feature 117, by Leon Stassen), we study how predicative possession is expressed. We consider only constructions in which the possessed NP has an indefinite reading, like English John has a horse.
In this study, the difference between temporary and permanent possession, for which languages may have different constructions, is irrelevant, so both types of possession situations are included.
A language may have several predicative possession constructions.
