About the Authors
  • The relationship between verbs and their arguments is a widely debated topic in linguistics. This comprehensive survey provides an overview of this important research area, exploring theories of how a verb's semantics can determine the morphosyntactic realization of its arguments. Assuming a close connection between verb meaning and syntactic structure, the analysis constructs a bridge between lexical-semantic and syntactic research. Synthesizing work results from a range of linguistic subdisciplines and a variety of theoretical frameworks, it will be invaluable to research in syntax, semantics, and related fields.

    • Looks at a research topic that is of interest to linguists across many theoretical persuasions, as well as researchers in neighbouring disciplines
    • Contains references to a large body of literature, enabling readers to further pursue the issues discussed
    • Acknowledges all important contributions to the area of research, regardless of their theoretical orientation
