Elicitation stimuli: Give video clips These 8 'give' video clips were shot to elicit give-constructions, namely grammatical constructions expressing a three-participant event in which an Agent (A) hands over an object or Theme (T) to a Recipient (R). In the design, we specifically controlled for two features, namely the action of taking the object and distance between T and R. To control for the action of taking, we manipulated the position of the object, either being in the hands of the actor (in hand) or being somewhere else in the close proximity of the actor (at hand) which triggered the action of taking. To control for the distance, we designed two options: either the participants are in arm reach from each other (no distance) or they are further away from each other (distance). This led to four possible combinations: in hand - no distance, at hand - no distance, in hand - distance and at hand - distance. For each combination of features, there are two videos with different objects involved. These video clips used as elicitation stimuli in the following study: Moro F. R. & Fricke H. (in press).
