Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics: Encoding Events

 

This book explores the syntax of events in the framework of generative grammar, focusing on the question of how conceptual meaning interacts with narrow syntactic computation. It provides insights into parametric theory, the relationship between core arguments and predicates, the syntax of non-core arguments, and the verb/satellite-framed typology.

Beschrijving Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics: Encoding Events

This volume presents theoretical and empirical research on the syntax of events within the broader framework of generative grammar, focusing on the central question of how conceptual meaning interacts with narrow syntactic computation. Xuhui Hu proposes a set of integration conditions that require the content of the predicate to be licensed by theta-role information generated by narrow syntax. The other principal theoretical component of the book concerns the
functional structure of events, which is related to issues such as the parallel between the event and nominal domains, the mapping of a predicate onto an entity, and the grammatical foundation of verb classification. The framework is applied to three areas: the syntax of resultatives in English and Chinese,
cross-linguistic and diachronic variation in resultatives, and applicative constructions. The findings shed light on the thematic relationship between core arguments and predicates and on the syntax of non-core arguments, contribute to the theory of parametric variation in the generative tradition, and provide insights into the verb-framed vs satellite-framed typology
