Abstract:

The topic of this collection is argument structure. The fourteen chaptersin this book are divided into four parts: Semantic and Syntactic Propertiesof Event Structure; A Cartographic View on Argument Structure; SyntacticHeads Involved in Argument Structure; and Argument Structure in LanguageAcquisition. Rigorous theoretical analyses are combined with empirical workon specific aspects of argument structure. The book brings together authorsworking in different linguistic fields (semantics, syntax, and languageacquisition), who explore new findings as well as more established data,but then from new theoretical perspectives. The contributions proposecartographic views of argument structure, as opposed to minimalisticproposals of a binary template model for argument structure, in order tooptimally account for various syntactic and semantic facts, as well as dataderived from wider cross-linguistic perspectives.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition                             Semantics                             Syntax
