Abstract:

This book offers a new account of the transitive particle verb
construction in English. The main emphasis is on the alternation
between the two word orders possible in English (continuous: hand in
the manuscript vs. discontinuous: hand the manuscript in). The central
aim is to show that the choice of the word order is not optional as
has often been claimed in related literature on the topic and that a
syntactic analysis should thus not be based on optional movement
operations or optional feature selection. The author argues in some
detail that the choice of the word order is determined to a great
extent by the information structuring of the context in which the
relevant construction is embedded. The syntactic structure she
develops is based on a substantial combination of empirical facts,
evidence from theoretical research and the results of two experimental
studies on the intonation patterns of the construction.
