Note that the dative case marking occurs only with animate nouns. Inanimate "recipients" (for example, when one sends something to a school) must be marked with locative case.

N The example has been linked to show a case where a verb builds a complex predicate with juda 'give' but a benefactive recipient is not added to the verb's valency. Obviously, with bonaeda it seems that its argument structure already subcategorises for a recipient argument, hence maybe the impossibility of applying a benefactive valency alternation. y
