Sorry, I just reread this and find the extra 
specification (which I did not take into account 
in my previous post) exclusive of most of the 
examples of b-noun VSO I mentioned. I don't 
really see why such is necessary as you can have 
"free-range" sentences with wSVOs attached to 
them. It should be sufficient that that it is 
obvious that phrases such as bywm govern VSOs. 
The rest follows.
