obl: oblique modifier

The obl relation is used for non-core nominal dependents of clausal predicates. In Swedish, nmod is used for prepositional complements/modifiers:

Mamma har hand om barnen \n Mother takes care of the children
obl(har, barnen)
case(barnen, om)
Han växte upp i en kollektiv miljö \n He grew up in a collective environment
obl(växte, miljö)
case(miljö, i)

But also for bare nominals used as oblique modifiers:

Hon kom förra helgen \n She came last weekend
obl(kom, helgen)

One subtype of obl is introduced in Swedish: obl:agent for agents of passive verbs.

obl in other languages: [bg] [bm] [cop] [cs] [de] [en] [ess] [fr] [fro] [ga] [gd] [gsw] [gub] [hy] [it] [ja] [ka] [ky] [no] [pcm] [pt] [qpm] [ru] [sl] [sv] [swl] [tr] [u] [uz] [vi] [yue] [zh]
