The third in a series of publications dealing with transformation and word classification. This Memorandum analyzes Russian constructions containing genitive substantives that must be modified by another unit, the exact form of which is not relevant. The transformationally determined varieties of such constructions are catalogued, and it is shown that all such constructions contain either an actual or an implied predication.
