obj: direct object

The direct object of a verb is the second most core argument of a verb after the subject. Typically, it is the noun phrase that denotes the entity acted upon or which undergoes a change of state or motion (the proto-patient). A direct object is a nominal which is the (accusative) object of the verbal predicate.

Stravince le elezioni del 1990 . 
obj(Stravince, elezioni)

The obj relation is also used to mark real reflexive constructions where the clitic pronoun is a direct object of the verb.

Mi ami ? 
obj(ami, Mi)

obj is also used in those cases where the direct object has no independent semantic value but it creates a unique semantic element together with the verb.

Hanno fatto fuoco prima su mio marito . 
obj(fatto, fuoco)
