This does not yet imply, however, that via this inherent role frame the predicate can determine the choice of topic and comment, not even in subject-prominent lan­ guages. Something like a topic-comment frame is not a necessary con­ stituent part of lexical entries of predicates; on the basis of lexical representations of predicates, no restrictions are imposed on potential topic-comment organizations. Although in subject-prominent languages the choice of semantic roles and of basic topic could appear to be syn­ chronized to some extent, it is important to realize that topicalization primarily is not accomplished in terms of semantic roles at all.

The semantic role configuration of a sentence (or rather: clause) is determined by the predicate; a characteristic role frame is firmly associated with each predicate in the lexicon.

Something like a topic-comment frame is not a necessary con­ stituent part of lexical entries of predicates; on the basis of lexical representations of predicates, no restrictions are imposed on potential topic-comment organizations.

Marr and his school. Rather than directly summarizing the basic tenets of this theory that postulated a stadial development of language contingent upon the conditions of economic production, an essential part of which allegedly is the dis­ placement of the ergative by the accusative sentence construction,^3 I should like to give a brief review of an influential critique of this theory, viz. Kurylowicz, 1946 [65], which is sometimes interpreted as having demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that the ergative and the accusative constructions are merely superficial morphosyntactic variants and entirely equivalent in semantic and pragmatic respects.
