Do you know any rule how I can decide (formally), wheter a German sentence contains a Genitivus subjectivus or a Genitivus objectivus?
Example: "der Besuch des Botschafters". Here, the ambassador visits, so "des Botschafters" is a genitivus subjectivus.
--> one rule could be that if the construction GENITIVE-OBJ + verbalized noun (here: "Der Botschafter besucht") exists, it's a Genitivus subjectivus.
"zum Besuch der Bundesrepublik nach Bonn" --> Genitivus objectivus, since "Die Bundesrepublik besucht" doesn't make any sense (and is, very probably, not found in any German corpus).
So, I would have one rule. But I don't know if there would be others, so I'd like to ask you if you know other rules / formal test which I can do in order to decide wheter it's an objectivus or a subjectivus?
At the end, I'd like to put the ideas and the rules in my code. I've a big, annotated corpus available, so it would be possible to do some checks.
