This paper presents the Role and Reference Grammar RRG Van Valin 2005 analysis of

three–place predicates. RRG takes a primarily lexical approach to the analysis of

three–place predicates and the coding alternations they enter into. There is an interesting

range of typological variation with respect to how languages realize three–place predicates

morphosyntactically, and this will be a major focus of this discussion. RRG is a monostratal

theory, and therefore analyses involving underlying syntactic representations and

movement rules are excluded in principle. Hence some of the phenomena associated with

these predicates present an interesting challenge for monostratal theories like RRG. The

languages to be discussed include English, Croatian, German, Indonesian, Kinyarwanda,

Yaqui, Dyirbal, Saliba and Kayardild.
