Abstract:

The relationship between verbs and their arguments is a widely debated
topic in linguistics. This comprehensive survey provides an up-to-date
overview of this important area of research, exploring current 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, it provides a bridge between lexical-semantic and syntactic
research, synthesizing the results of work from a range of linguistic
subdisciplines and in a variety of theoretical frameworks. The first part
surveys leading theories about event structure and conceptualization, the
second part focusing on the mapping from lexical semantics to morphosyntax.
The thematic hierarchy is discussed in detail, and the final chapter
reviews treatments of multiple argument realization. With useful
bibliographic references and clear definitions of relevant terms, this book
will be invaluable to students and researchers in syntax and semantics, as
well as those in related fields.
