Composite Predicates in Middle English

University of Santiago de Compostela

The present study addresses the need for an account of the linguistic
and extralinguistic peculiarities of composite predicates (such as He
told me to HAVE a LOOK at the report), formed with don, haven, maken,
taken and yeven in the Middle English period, on the basis of the
evidence provided by the Helsinki Corpus of English Texts, Diachronic
and Dialectal.
This book addresses the need for an account of the linguistic and
extralinguistic peculiarities of composite predicates (such as He told
me to HAVE a LOOK at the report), formed with don, haven, maken, taken
and yeven in the Middle English period, on the basis of the evidence
provided by the Helsinki Corpus of English Texts, Diachronic and
Dialectal.
The volume opens with an introduction covering goals and method. The
firt chapter contains a review of previous studies on the topic, a
definition of composite predicates and the criteria used to limit them
are established. Several issues relevant to the study of CPs, which
are dealt with in greater depth later in the study , are
introduced. Throughout the subsequent chapters, composite predicates
are considered with regard to different linguistic and extralinguistic
parameters, including their chronology and origin, their syntact
features and patterning, their distribution across different textual
types and their association any particular register. A selection of
high frequency CPs and their equivalent simple verbs is contrasted to
reveal any extralinguistic or linguistic factors that may motivate the
choice of one of the two structures.The book closes with a
recapitulation of the main conclusions reached.
