Causative constructions in French display restrictions as to the cliticization of lexical datives onto the causative. In altogether different frameworks, Fauconnier (1983), Burzio (1986) and Goodall (1987) have related this restriction to the ergative-inergative distinction. However, the inability to formally define ergative verbs in French, as well as further restrictions on the cliticization of datives in causative constructions show that this hypothesis fails to account for the data observed. A thematic condition on dative cliticization in causatives adequately describes the restrictions noted
