Consider a language where the genitive construction is of the form
PARTICLE POSSESSOR POSSESSED
so, for example, "The King's horse" would be (using English glosses)
of King horse.
Now, suppose we want to say "The King's knight's horse". The logical
extension of the paradigm is
of of King knight horse.
This seems somewhat inelegant. What do natlangs (or conlangs for that
matter) with similar syntax do?
