Abstract:

This book investigates different types of verb-PP combinations and examines
the types of meanings which arise when the argument structure of the PP
fuses with the verbal argument structure. Focussing mainly on data from
Norwegian, the book investigates three different empirical domains of PP-VP
combinations and concludes that the arising interpretations result from a
combination of the fine-grained structure of the PP, the structure of the
verb phrase, and the different modes of combination. The book sheds new
light on the syntax-semantics interplay while adding new insight about the
properties of the category P in Norwegian. The book also contributes to the
debate between Lexicalism and Constructionism, and it concludes that a
moderate Constructionist model with a fine-grained syntactic structure
determining interpretation is best equipped to handle the enormous
flexibility of verb-prepositional phrase combinations of the types explored.

Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories
