Abstract:

The use of large electronic corpora has revealed that the system of English predicate complementation has recently been undergoing major changes, referred to as the Great Complement Shift. This book documents these changes and and innovative trends in recent English. The author draws on large electronic corpora to focus on the semantic properties of core patterns involving infinitival and -ing clauses. In-depth case studies of such patterns presented here uncover new links between form and meaning in these constructions, offering fresh insights into explanatory principles to account for variation and change in the system of English predicate complementation.
