Complex Predicates in Nonderivational Syntax collects contemporary examine in advanced predicates inside various languages, similar to German, Dutch, Italian, French, Korean, and Urdu. spotting that advanced predicates is without doubt one of the such a lot energetic learn components in nonderivational theories of grammar, participants concentrate on different elements of advanced predicate phenomena, together with order version, constituency family members, interactions with different development kinds, argument family, and the syntax–morphology interface. Their focus on problems with linguistically enough description open those articles to these attracted to syntax, semantics, morphology, computational linguistics, and common language processing. Key beneficial properties * Essays written through the prime researchers within the box, together with Ivan Sag * Makes the clearest and so much complex assertion so far approximately advanced predicates

Mapping spatial PPS : the cartography of syntactic structures

Mapping Spatial PPs makes a speciality of a specific element of the interior syntax of prepositional words that has been fairly overlooked in earlier experiences: the fine-grained articulation in their constitution. With contributions from best students within the box, this quantity investigates such elements as path, place, axial half, deictic heart, absolute (ambiental) and relative view aspect, utilizing facts from Romance, Germanic, and African languages, with references to different language households.

Grammaticalization at Work: Studies of Long-term Developments in English

The way forward for English linguistics as envisaged through the editors of themes in English Linguistics lies in empirical stories which combine paintings in English linguistics into normal and theoretical linguistics at the one hand, and comparative linguistics at the different. The TiEL sequence positive factors volumes that current fascinating new facts and analyses, and principally clean methods that give a contribution to the final goal of the sequence, that's to extra impressive study in English linguistics.

37 That toi is second person is shown by examples such as: Il ne se vend bien que vous qui avez toujours toutes les chances. ' 38 Koenig (1994:62ff), in discussing an earlier version of this analysis (Godard and Sag, 1995), argues that binding principles should play no role in the analysis of medio-passives. , principles of lexical well-formedness. We share Koenig's concern for processing autonomy, but binding principles must be constraints on words in HPSG, as words (more precisely their categories) are the only constructs that have ARG-ST lists.

B. Paul les fera [lire Proust]. ' The VP complementation structure also differs in freely allowing clitics to be realized on the downstairs verb heading the VP complement: (32) Paul les fera [le lire]. ' Composition in French CPs 19 On the other hand, cases which we will show below to be unambiguously instances of composition FAIRE, such as (29b,c), only allow upstairs realization of the clitics on the causative verb. 1. Composition Causatives and Upstairs Cliticization If the double complementation analysis is correct, as we believe it to be, it changes the way we should look at the cliticization facts in causative constructions.

1. Composition Causatives and Upstairs Cliticization If the double complementation analysis is correct, as we believe it to be, it changes the way we should look at the cliticization facts in causative constructions. One of our central claims is that composition causatives never allow downstairs cliticization of the sort shown in (32). From this perspective, so-called "clitic climbing" is not optional in French. Rather, there is an alternation between two different structures; and in each structure there is a determinate position for the realization of clitics.
