passive 'was ... gawasiþs taglam ulbandaus' and the active
intransitive 'hve wasjaima', 'gawasjam sarwam liuhadis', 'ni wasjaiþ
twaim paidom'. Or 'agisa mikillamma dishaibaida wesun' : 'ohtedun
agisa mikilamma'. But can we generalise from that to other uses of
the dative? I'll see if I can find a closer match somewhere. Or
would a preposition help: miþ, fram, af?
