It is a widely accepted view that Dutch (verbal) predicates can take a maximum of one prepositional object complement, the so-called ‘voorzetselvoorwerp’. If there is a second prepositional phrase in the sentence, it is relegated to the realm of adjuncts. This article argues for an analysis accommodating the possibility of two prepositional object complements with one predicate, just as in the case of nominal objects. These prepositional objects have, just like the nominal ones, to be distinguished internally on relational and hierarchical grounds.
