The paper analyses those existential sentences whose predication most frequently includes the negated form of the verb 'imati' ( to have ), and the role of the partial beneficiary implies an entity in the accusative with the preposition 'za' ( for ). When compared with the typical situation, where the existence of an entity also implies conditions for the general benefit because its nature allows for that possibility, the discussed examples represent the marked variant. In the majority of cases, negation provides a partial limitation for the beneficiary represented by the prepositional accusative, although the existence of the entity which could is not challenged ( e.g. Nema vode za mene./ There is no water for me ). In the smaller number of examples, markedness is based on the fact that the beneficiary with the affirmative verb has a partial, and not general character ( e.g. Ima vremena samo za mene. / There is time only for me ).
