Abstract

This paper focuses on passive constructions in Dutch. Specifically, we focus on worden, as well as krijgen passives in Dutch, for which we propose a uniform, raising analysis in HPSG. We also show that such an analysis can be carried over to account for passives cross-linguistically. Specifically, we look at corresponding structures in German and show that there is no need for a dual raising and control analysis for the German ˋˋagentive'' (werden) and the German ˋˋdative'' (kriegen) passives, respectively, as has been proposed in Müller (2002) and Müller (2003).
