Call Information:
Nominalizations and Corpus

Special issue of the Verbum journal
Guest Editors: Evelyne Jacquey and Marie Laurence Knittel

Nominalizations are an important research topic at the crossroad of morphology, syntax and semantics. For example, the question of the inheritance of verbal properties (aspect and argument structure) by deverbal event nominals has drawn the attention of many researchers. Other deverbal nouns (agents, patients, instruments, etc), deadjectival nominalizations, stative nouns and their characteristics, as well as result nominals also constitute important fields of research.
The aim of the Workshop 'Nominalisations et Corpus' (Nominalization and Corpus studies) is to contribute, by the means of corpus studies, to a better understanding of these phenomena.
