(22a) mul din kel en gamal mu-gi go reach return ART house POSS.GEN-3SG ne mi'ir TAM sleep 'Came back to his house and went to sleep.' JJQ.344 (22b) [...] si ne kal ma le =n or TAM enter hither LOC =ART mu-k en gamal POSS.GEN-1SG ART men's.house '[I do not allow that anybody comes here and talks to me] or will come into my house.' ISWM.251 At the face of it, the two types of construction seem to be semantically interchangeable in these contexts.
(24) Nik e le =n go-k en va'al 2SG TAM give =ART POSS.EAT-1SG ART banana 'Give me some bananas [to eat].' JJQ.206 As opposed to the prepositional construction, the adnominal construction is clearly associated with a CAUSED POSSESSION event schema in the sense of Rappaport Hovav & Levin (2008): in example (24), the Recipient argument is construed as 'possessing' the bananas as a result of the transfer, and even the type of possessive relation is specified by the respective possessive classifier go- which signals that a possessor has something in order to eat it.
(25a) dir =k le =n nak su-suo 3PL =TAM take =ART canoe RED-paddle mu-gi =k suo den POSS.GEN-3SG =TAM paddle away 'They took his canoe and paddled away.' JJQ.169 (25b) di =m le =n mu-gi =n vus [...] 3SG =TAM take =ART POSS.GEN-3SG =ART bow 'He took his bow [and went off (with it).].' ISWM.091 In example (25a), the possessive relationship is presented as given and of no further concern at this point in the discourse--the canoe is still the property of the possessor.
(28) dir ga moros dir =m bol en nak mu-gi 3PL TAM want 3PL =TAM steel ART canoe POSS.GEN-3SG 'They wanted to steal his canoe.' JJQ.134 To summarize, the adnominal three-participant construction is undoubtedly associated with a CAUSED POSSESSION event schema.
