Pressestimmen

"This book is a significant milestone in our understanding of verb semantics: A verb's argument structure is built compositionally from a universal inventory of morphologically plausible building blocks. After Parsons' pioneering work, neo-Davidsonian event semantics has now been tied to a theory of possible causative and applicative constructions."--Angelika Kratzer, Department of Linguistics, South College, University of Massachusetts at Amherst -- Angelika Kratzer "Pylkkanen's impressive book lays out the distinctions between core and non-core arguments and a mechanism for deriving complex predicates by integrating non-core arguments via a finite set of designated functional heads. The discussion is very detailed and richly illustrated with examples from many languages where the morphology reveals structure more vividly than it does in English. I have no doubt that Pylkkanen's book will be the beginning for all future work in this area."--Norbert C.
