This chapter argues that two types of lexical dative experiencers need to be distinguished. Regular dative experiencer arguments are merged in unaccusative structures, but a natural class of unergative predicates optionally license low dative experiencer adjuncts and assign them a theta role. The differences between the two dative types are discussed and explained in a lexicalist framework.

Keywords:   adjuncts, dative case, experiencers, Hungarian, Theta System
