Abstract

In the last two decades there has been a debate about the question whether a simple clause can contain more than one prepositional object. In this paper, I argue that the underlying grammatical model plays a decisive role in opting for either one or two prepositional objects, as becomes clear in the discussion between Vandeweghe and Broekhuis. Moreover, following Vandeweghe, I claim that simple clauses indeed can contain two prepositional objects if the relationship of each of the two objects to the predicate is different.
