Book Information


Title: "Haben" als Vollverb [Have as a Complete Verb]
Subtitle: Eine dekompositionale Analyse
Written By: Martin Businger
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistische Arbeiten 538

This monograph on the verb "have" in the function of a full verb asserts that
have-constructions in the syntactic analysis are to be placed in relationship with
absolute with-constructions (cf. "Mit den Füßen auf dem Tisch erwarte ich
meine Schwiegereltern" [Literal translation: "With my feet on the table I expect
my parents-in-law"]. Furthermore, the study also contributes to a better
understanding of the syntax and semantics of adjectives. The findings are
interpreted within the context of generative and optimal theoretical models.
