Abstract:

This volume deals with the occurrence of lexical gaps in the domain of
linguistic action verbs. Though these constitute a considerable proportion
of the verb inventory of many languages, not all concepts of verbal
communication may be expressed by lexical items in any particular one of
them. Introducing a conceptual system which allows gaps to be searched for
systematically, this study shows which concepts of verbal communication are
and which are not lexicalised in English, German and Dutch. The
lexicalisation patterns observed shed light on the way in which verbal
behaviour is conceptualised in a particular speech community. To complete
the picture, the volume also addresses the question of whether
communication concepts which may not be expressed by verbs may be
lexicalised by fixed multiword expressions.
