In this conclusion, we address three issues: a) the geographic extent of GNMCCs in Eurasia, including considerations of areal phenomena resulting from language contact; b) delimiting GNMCCs from other constructions, in particular those that in Japanese fall under GNMCCs; and c) structural properties that favor or disfavor GNMCCs.
