    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This paper argues that language-particular restrictions on ditransitive construc- tions are best understood as instantiations of easily falsifiable implicational universals that can be explained functionally, rather than as falling out from a restrictive formal metalanguage. Well-known restrictions on ditransitives in English (&lt;em&gt;*She gave Kim it&lt;/em&gt;) and French (&lt;em&gt;*Elle donna Kim le livre&lt;/em&gt;) are shown to be instantiations of inverse patterns that are completely parallel to inverse pat- terns in monotransitive constructions. Moreover, ditransitive constructions are parallel to monotransitives in that they exhibit differential recipient marking and differential theme marking, analogous to differential object and subject marking.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
