beosgida (벗기다)

show comment

At least from what is suggested by the orthography, beos-gi-da 'take_off-CAUS-DECL' seems to be the causative of beos-da 'take_off', but curiously, beosda and beosgida both have a transitive coding pattern, and the only difference between these verbs seems to be that beosgida is used when an animate agent takes something off something or someone else, and beosda is used when an animate agent takes someting off someone's own body. Whether possessor ascension is applicable to this verb is questionable, which is why 'marginally' as been chosen here as an option.
