Oblique Object
« on: September 09, 2015, 11:55:42 AM »
An oblique object is a grammatical relation proposed for a noun phrase clause constituent with the following characteristics:
1. Its nature and behavior are more readily describable in semantic terms than syntactic.
2. It is likely to be the most constrained in the semantic roles it may individually express.
3. It is likely to be marked by an adposition or case affix.
4. It is not likely to be a target of syntactic rules, such as agreement with the verb, or strategies of relativization.

Example (English)
    •  English prepositional phrases, as clause constituents, can be considered oblique objects.
 She was bitten by a spider.
