Title: Event Structure and the Left Periphery
Subtitle: Studies on Hungarian
Edited By: KatalinÉ.Kiss
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4753-3
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

This book provides substantial new results in a novel field of research
examining the syntactic and semantic consequences of event structure. The
studies of this volume examine the hypothesis that event structure
correlates with word order, the presence or absence of the verbal
particle, the [+/- specific] feature of the internal argument, aspect,
focusing, negation, and negative quantification, among others. The results
reported concern the telicising vs. perfectivizing role of the verbal
particle; the syntactic and semantic differences of verbs denoting a
delimited change, and those denoting creation or coming into being;
evidence of viewpoint aspect in a language with no morphological viewpoint
marking; the aspectual role of non-thematic objects; the source of
the ‘exhaustive identification’ function of structural focus; the
interaction of negation and aspect etc.
