Abstract:

This study presents an analysis of the synchronic and diachronic properties
of two types of complex predicate in Dutch: separable complex verbs (or
particle verbs) and inseparable complex verbs (or prefixed verbs). The
synchronic part of the book discusses the morphosyntactic structure of
these complex predicates and their semantic properties. The diachronic part
focuses on the grammaticalisation of the two types of complex predicate.
The data are drawn from a Modern Dutch dictionary and a Middle Dutch corpus.

The data are interpreted in a "linking" model of the language faculty,
which posits parallel, autonomous but corresponding levels of
representation. Such a model separates the semantic structure of complex
predicates from their morphosyntactic structure. The notion "constructional
idiom" also plays an important role in accounting for the data and the
analysis thus sheds light on the relationship between syntax, morphology,
and the lexicon.

Complex Predicates in Dutch is of interest to linguists studying complex
predicates, the syntax-morphology interface, the semantics-syntax
interface, constructional idioms, grammaticalisation, and Germanic languages.
