Thanks for your reply. I thought a while and it seems to me
that verbs like 'buy, get, see(as in a movie), even 'read' --
as in "What are you going to do over vacation?"
"I'm going to read me a good book."
are used. It is as if (it seems to me right now) the pronoun
were a type of dative (if you think of underlying case grammar).
Shakespeare wrote (was it in Hamlet?) "Slay me yonder villain!"
