Basic Coding frame

This in an indirective ditransitive construction. Rs are marked by the dative case postposition eun ‘to/toward (sb)’, which is employed for marking animate obliques such as Recipient, Addressee or animate Goal (ex. 41), and is distinguished from un ‘to/towards (sth)’, which is employed for marking inanimate Goal obliques (ex. 43).
It should be noted that the frequency of the
eun-marked indirective ditransitive construction in texts is rather low and that it is preferably used with those few verbs for which there are no corresponding Recipient/Addressee applicatives. In other words, if there is a Recipient/Addressee applicative in ko- (ex. 42), the eun-marked indirective construction, has a low chance of occurring in texts, and completely no chance of occurring if R is encoded by a pronominal argument (ex. 42).
The above-mentioned frequency restriction does not apply to the cases where R participant is, strictly speaking, not a Recipient proper, i.e.
un-marked indirective construction with inanimate Goal and wa-marked indirective construction with animate/inanimate Source: they are fairly frequent in texts regardless of the existence/non-existence of the corresponding applicative constructions.
