Note: This is the second edition of a previously announced book.

This book addresses the need for an account of the linguistic and
extralinguistic peculiarities of composite predicates (such as He told me
to HAVE a LOOK at the report), formed with don, haven, maken, taken and
yeven in the Middle English period, on the basis of the evidence provided
by the Helsinki Corpus of English Texts, Diachronic and Dialectal.

The volume opens with an introduction covering goals and method. The first
chapter contains a review of previous studies on the topic, a definition of
composite predicates and the criteria used to limit them are established.
Several issues relevant to the study of CPs, which are dealt with in
greater depth later in the study, are introduced. Throughout the subsequent
chapters, composite predicates are considered with regard to different
linguistic and extralinguistic parameters, including their chronology and
origin, their syntact features and patterning, their distribution across
different textual types and their association any particular register. A
selection of high frequency CPs and their equivalent simple verbs is
contrasted to reveal any extralinguistic or linguistic factors that may
motivate the choice of one of the two structures.The book closes with a
recapitulation of the main conclusions reached.
