Abstract:
This paper is an initial look at one type of noun phrases, that is, possessive noun phrases. It is a descriptive paper and simply lays out the data at hand. There is no attempt to put it into a theoretical framework. The paper presents the data by first discussing the possessee slot which is relatively simple. It then discusses the possessor slot which is more complex. The possessor slot may be filled with pronouns, nouns, and a possessive particle. It may also entail layering. This type of layering refers to the cases where a possessive noun phrase has in the possessor slot, another possessive noun phrase.
