Lance" Subject: Re: -"had" Constructions My use of "dative of interest" reflected a conversation a colleague and I had of "I had my pants fall down on me" back in 1968-69. He suggested the term as one that might include not only the "malefactives" as Dennis Preston called them but others that I can't now recall. DMLance
