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?
