Title: Interactions of particles, adjectival resultatives and benefactive double object constructions in Norwegian
Author: Mai Tungseth
Institution: Lund University
Linguistic Field: Linguistic Theories; Syntax
Abstract: In this paper, I take a closer look at a set of observations concerning word order and co-occurrence restrictions on verb-particle constructions, benefactive double object constructions and resultative constructions in Norwegian. While a particle can co-occur with both a beneficiary DP and a resultative AP, beneficiary DPs and resultatives cannot co-occur at all. I give an analysis in terms of the system proposed in Ramchand (2006), where I argue that the co-occurrence restrictions follow from the syntactic structure assumed together with independent properties of adjectival resultative constructions and verb-particle constructions.
