Title: Lexical Semantics in LFG
Edited By: Miriam Butt
Tracy Holloway King
Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism
Description:

Available for the first time in years, Lexical Semantics in LFG is a
reissue of the groundbreaking "Papers in Lexical Functional Grammar." It
spans a diverse range of topics, including Italian unaccusatives,
Malayalam causatives, derived nominals, resultatives, and non-nominative
subjects in Icelandic. With its emphasis on representations of lexical
semantic information that allow operations on predicate-argument relations
and grammatical relations to be independent of structural configurations,
the text will be of interest to both scholars and students of linguistics.
