Description Within the framework of a comparative study, the chapter is dealing with reflexivization in German and Czech. On the basis of data from the parallel corpus InterCorp it is shown that reflexivization in both languages is a productive, even in cases of other-directed (extroverted) verbs. However, the data also suggest that reflexive constructions with extremely extroverted verbs in German are often replaced by alternative constructions, while in Czech there seems to be no restrictions imposed on the reflexivization even of extremely extroverted verbs.
