Abstract:

The topic of this collection is argument structure. The fourteen chapters
in this book are divided into four parts: Semantic and Syntactic Properties
of Event Structure; A Cartographic View on Argument Structure; Syntactic
Heads Involved in Argument Structure; and Argument Structure in Language
Acquisition. Rigorous theoretical analyses are combined with empirical work
on specific aspects of argument structure. The book brings together authors
working in different linguistic fields (semantics, syntax, and language
acquisition), who explore new findings as well as more established data,
but then from new theoretical perspectives. The contributions propose
cartographic views of argument structure, as opposed to minimalistic
proposals of a binary template model for argument structure, in order to
optimally account for various syntactic and semantic facts, as well as data
derived from wider cross-linguistic perspectives.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition
                            Semantics
                            Syntax

Written In: English (eng )
