The object of verbs like help and an apparent violation of UTAH

Platzack, Christer LU (2005)
Abstract
This paper discusses verbs like help, that takes dative case on its object in the Germanic languages with morphological case. In this paper I discuss whether the loss of morphological case in English and mainland Scandinavian had any influence on the argument structure of the VP headed by help-type of verbs.
