Title: Adjective Complementation
Subtitle: An empirical analysis of adjectives followed by 'that'-clauses
Written By: Ilka Mindt
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2042
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 42
Description:

This is the first empirical study to focus on adjectives complemented by
'that'-clauses. The in-depth analysis of more than 50,000 cases
taken from the British National Corpus gives comprehensive insights
into hitherto neglected relations of lexis and grammar. The result of this
corpus-driven study is a novel classification of adjectives based on co-
occurrence patterns and corroborated with the help of statistical means.
The inductive analysis of corpus data offers new perspectives on and
innovative descriptions of well-known phenomena of English grammar,
such as extraposition or the resultative construction 'so…that'. It
is based on a new methodological approach, which looks at mutual
relations of both lexis and grammar in unprecedented ways.
