Sample text

Make is a late developer as a causative. It does not occur at all as such in original Old English, nor in the Brut. In the other texts of the corpus, it is more frequent in the subject than in the object construction. In Gower it occurs only three times in an object construction. Moreover, all three cases resemble the ambiguous cases discussed in (22), in which the pre-infinitival N P could be interpreted as both object (of a transitive verb) and subject (of an intransitive verb). The dictionary still classifies all three verbs as transitive.

As for factor 1, we note that there is not a lot of difference between the fictional texts and the expository parts of the Paston Letters, but clearly the more spontaneous parts of the Letters are highly interactive.
