Abstract:

This book focuses on the linguistic representation of temporality in the
verbal domain and its interaction with the syntax and semantics of verbs,
arguments, and modifiers. Leading scholars explore the division of labor
between syntax and semantics, and lexical semantics in the encoding of
event structure, encompassing event participants and the temporal
properties associated with events. They examine the interface between event
structure and the systems with which it interacts, including the interface
between event structure and the syntactic realization of arguments and
modifiers. Deploying a variety of frameworks and theoretical perspectives
they consider central issues and questions in the field, among them whether
argument-structure is specified in the lexical entries of verbs or
syntactically constructed so that syntactic position determines thematic
status; whether the hierarchical structure evidenced in argument structure
finds parallels in sign language; should the relation between members of an
alternation pair, such as the causative-inchoative alternation, be
understood lexically or derivationally; and the role of syntactic category
in determining the configuration of argument structure.
