Abstract: Applying methods of cognitive grammar, the author discusses three peripheral types of accusative direct object in Croatian. The peripheral status of the first two types follows from the morphosyntactic peculiarity as manifested in the impossibility of passivizing the active clauses they are part of. The third type appears in one type of impersonal sentences.
