obj: direct object

A direct object is a nominal which is the (accusative) object of the verbal predicate.

Il mange un sandwich . \n He eats a sandwich .
obj(mange, sandwich)

The obj relation is also used for a reflexive pronoun in pronominal verb when the pronoun is a direct object of the verb.

Il se lave . \n He washes himself .
obj(lave, se)

When the pronoun is a part of a fixed verbal expression that is syntactically regular, we can analyze it with obj:

se douter \n to suspect
obj(douter, se)
se souvenir \n to remember
obj(souvenir, se)
on voit une jeune fille habillée en noir \n we see a young girl dressed in black
obj(voit, fille)
