NP´s in Sentences with Causative Predicate

Let’s make this causative thing clear, shall we?

 

Causative is used when the subject makes someone else perform an action. The causative marking of the predicate changes the roles of the noun phrases so that AGENT becomes PATIENT. If the verb stem is intransitive (gelmek) this sentence element takes the position of a direct object. When definite it is marked with accusative ending:

 

Yavuz Sultan Selim, Mısır’dan dönerken El-Ezher’den ulemaları İstanbul’a getirdi.

 

Ali Kuşçu gibi ünlü Türk bilim adamlarını İstanbul’a getirtti.

 

If the verb stem is transitive (yapmak), there is an object already:


Yine padişah, huzurunda felsefi tartışmalar yaptırıyordu.

 

If the performer of the action is mentioned it takes the position of an indirect object and it is marked with dative:

 

Fatih ayrıca İtalyan ressam Gentile Bellini´ye kendi hususi resmi olmak üzere çeşitli portreler ve heykeller yaptırmıştır.

 

Fatih´in yanında bulunan İtalyan nedimesi ona Antik Yunanistan´daki düşünürlerin ve Romalı tarihçilerin eserlerini okutmuştu.

 

Is this all there is to it or did I simplify the case too much?
