Title: Complex Predicates in Japanese: A Syntactic and Semantic Study of the Notion 'Word'
Written By: Yo Matsumoto
Description:

In this thoroughly revised version of a 1992 Stanford dissertation, the author presents an extensive discussion of Japanese complex predicates. A broad range of constructions and predicates are examined, which include predicative complement constructions, light verbs, causative predicates, desiderative predicates, syntactic and lexical compound verbs, and complex motion predicates. A number of new interesting facts are uncovered, and detailed syntactic and semantic analyses are presented.
