This paper will be concerned with the distribution of Case marking in Russian
secondary predicates. I will particularly analyze Case alternations in simple
matrix clauses and control configurations. I account for these facts by
distinguishing NP-movement structures from the structures containing a null
pronominal. This general topic is often referred to as the Second Dative.
However, it is somewhat misleading because Dative Case marking happens to be
very unproductive in secondary predicates in Russian, with a more general
paradigm involving actually Instrumental Case.
