This dissertation investigates how the location of an event can be
syntactically expressed (as opposed to lexically). This topic is considered
in relation to the absentive construction in Dutch (Jan is vissen 'John's
gone fishing'), a construction which has so far not been analysed in a
generative syntactic framework. The specific semantic interpretation of the
absentive, i.e. absence of its subject, is accounted for in terms of
binding. This approach represents the first attempt to subsume the spatial
dimension under the heading of binding.

A further aim of this dissertation is to examine where in the syntactic
structure events are located. The discussion focuses primarily on the role
of prepositions in relating verbal complements to event structure. Two
constructions are considered in detail: (1) the absolute with-infinitive,
which occurs in a number of Dutch dialects spoken in Belgium, and (2) the
verbal collocation pattern, including the P+CP construction in standard Dutch.

The dissertation's combined theoretical and empirical orientation makes it
of interest to a general syntactic readership.
