Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: La estructura léxica de la resultatividad y su expresión en las lenguas germánicas y románicas
Written By: Gretel De Cuyper
Series Title: Lincom Studies in Language Typology 11
Description:

Este libro abarca un estudio comparativo sobre las características léxicas
de la estructura argumental y aspectual de los eventos resultativos en
español, catalán, neerlandés e inglés, desarrollado en el marco de la
Sintaxis Léxica.

Al revisar la clase de los eventos delimitados, se muestra la
necesidad de distinguir entre dos subclases de eventos en base al estatus
potencial o real de la obtención del estado final. Así, los eventos
télicos incluyen una meta o telos y los eventos resultativos, un
resultado.

La adopción de esta distinción abre el camino para arrojar una
nueva luz sobre un controvertido uso aspectual controvertido del SE
románico. Éste se analiza aquí como un marcador analítico de la
resultatividad. Asimismo, se refuta la hipótesis talmyana, según la cual
las lenguas románicas expresarían la información aspectual dentro del
verbo, al contrario de las lenguas germánicas.

El estudio acaba con una discusión sobre el estatus primitivo o
compuesto del verbo de la construcción resultativa analítica en las
lenguas germánicas y románicas: se afina el análisis de los que defienden
su estatus compuesto.

Este trabajo contiene, por tanto, un estudio léxico profundo de la
estructura argumental y aspectual de la construcción resultativa.
