(p.186) 5 The possessor doubling constructions in the Germanic languages
Genitives in Early English

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at possessor doubling constructions, in which a form looking like a possessive pronoun is used, instead of an inflection, as a possessive marker, in various Germanic languages. This prepares the ground for a comparison of possessive construction found in earlier English with these doubling constructions.

Keywords:   Germanic languages, possessor doubling, linguistic typology, constructions, possessive pronoun
