The Stratal Uniqueness Law and Double Object Constructions in Standard Arabic

Auther : Mahmoud H. Salih

Wright (1974) and Comrie (1976) make the strong claim that Standard Arabic (SA) tolerates double direct object constructions. Accordingly, such constructions violate a universal posited in the theory of Relational Grammar (RG), the Stratal Uniqueness Law (SUL),which maintains that no more than one nominal can bear a given grammatical relation like direct object in a single level of structure. Taking RG as a framework, I argue in this paper against their claim, demonstrating that such constructions in SA support the SUL. SA has clauses which involve two nominals marked for the accusative case. Further, such nominals result from the advancement of indirect object to direct object, and display different syntactic behavior.
