Why not "This theory's analysis is wrong"

March 11, 2018


Does this mean that the theory analyzes something? Or that a person analyzes the theory? From all the previous uses of 'của' I've seen that would suggest the first (the analysis belongs to the theory). But that doesn't make sense as a theory can't do analysis, only a person can - which would suggest the second meaning. But that would be the first time I've seen 'của' used in this way.
