I can see where you're going :-) On the other hand, isn't the part: on "The Daily Arabian" to win some kind of clause in itself? It's a bit like the following: for "The Daily Arabian" to win which wouldn't preclude it from being a fourth argument :-) This of course brings me/us to a bit of a fix... Is there any way - a test - to determine whether a phrase is a core argument or an oblique argument? ...
