Summary

Using small corpus, we present results of a study of adjectival resultatives in Croatian and English legislative parallel texts. Previous studies of adjectival passives are reviewed, and their focus on the structure and differences is noted. A number of related structures are discussed. The corpus evidence is then used to investigate the similarities and differences between adjectival resultatives in the two languages.
