  Complex Predicates examines a number of linguistic phenomena—including auxiliary and verb combinations, causative constructions, predicatives, depictive secondary predicates, and particle and verb combinations—and uses scrambling and fronting data to determine that all except the depictive secondary predicates should be treated as complex : Stefan Muller.   Stefan Müller's book is an important and ambitious contribution to the growing body of work on complex predicates in theoretical linguistics. He investigates a range of syntactic phenomena in German, among them verbal complexes, passive constructions, subject and object predicatives, depictive secondary predicates, resultative secondary.

This book takes a detailed look at two differing complex predicates in the South Asian language Urdu. The Urdu permissive in particular brings into focus the problem of the syntax-semantics mismatch. An examination of the syntactic properties of this complex predicate shows that it is formed by the combination of two semantic heads, but that this combination is not mirrored in the syntax in.

This article examines the grammaticalisation of the so-called complex predicates. It explains that a complex predicate is a construction consisting of a light verb, an article, and a deverbal noun. It analyses the history of complex predicates in the English language and attempts to determine what construction types are encompassed by the designation complex by: 2. I am writing this article based on request by some developers regarding how to write some complex queries using LINQ & Lambda expression which consist of joins / groupby / aggregate functions. Just for demo I have created an OrderMaster & OrderDetail classes. Both are having a relationship between each other via OrderId & UserId column.

The present volume presents a collection of theoretical linguistic results on the study of complex predicates in different perspectives and with a variety of approaches. Important empirical and theoretical issues cutting across various subfields of linguistics are being addressed in this book, such as.

This book is an attempt to provide a corpus based account of Bangla complex predicates and represent them in a structured lexicon suitable for further information processing useful in any Natural Language Processing (NLP) : $ This book provides a simple but precise framework for describing complex predicates and related constructions, and applies it principally Complex predicates book the analysis of complex predicates in Romance, and certain serial verb constructions in Tariana and by: Complex predicates book predicates are multipredicational, but monoclausal structures.

They have proven problematic for linguistic theory, particularly for proposed distinctions between the lexicon, morphology, and syntax. Complex predicates usually are defined as predicates which are multi-headed; they are composed of more than one grammatical element (either morphemes or words), each of which contributes part of.

The book presents the theoretical framework as a basis of the following analyses and discusses thematic roles, reflexive binding and case marking. Attention is also given to passive, benefactive and causative Originally published inthis volume analyses complex predicate constructions in Japanese in the framework of Head-driven Phrase Pages: ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: vi, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm.

Complex predicates are multipredicational, but monoclausal structures. They have proven problematic for linguistic theory, particularly for proposed distinctions between the lexicon, morphology, and syntax. This volume focuses on the mapping from morphosyntactic structures to event structure, and in particular the constraints on possible mappings.

This book examines various linguistic phenomena and determines that certain constructions should be treated as complex predicates.

Specifically, the book explores auxiliary and verb combinations in future, perfect, and passive constructions; causative constructions, verb complex constructions with raising and control verbs; subject and object predicatives; depictive secondary predicates (1.

The book will be useful for researchers working in theoretical linguistic issues like argument structure, semantics of complex predicates etc in general. The book uses a powerful knowledge representation framework Generative Lexicon for the representation of the complex predicates and can be used in the area of applied Artificial Intelligence Brand: Partridge Publishing India.

In this respect, Alice Davison at the Universit y of Iowa had a most stimulating effec t as : Miriam Jessica Butt. Complex predicates in a number of diverse languages present an interesting problem for formal linguistics as their overall semantics cannot be placed into a simple one-to-one correspondence with the syntactic or morphological pieces which form the complex predicate.

A central issue in the investigation of complex predicates thus is the interaction between syntax and book takes a. Complex predicates present different levels of complexity at the syntactic and morphological levels crosslinguistically.

The focus of this book is a subset of these constructions (causative and applicative) in three polysynthetic languages of the South Caucasian language family, in which the functional morphology associated with the argument structure of these constructions is Pages: This book is concerned with the issue of predication as the central theme of all linguistic theories.

or preposition fuses with a ‘bleached verb’ as the impoverished form of the verbal element to form what is called a complex predicate or ‘nuclear juncture’. These complex predicates in Persian have received little attention in. A complex predicate is a multi-word predicate (see Section 9, "Multi-word predicates ") consisting of a semantically empty verb which expresses the grammatical meanings in a sentence, and a noun (frequently denoting an event or a state of affairs) which carries the main lexical meaning of the entire phrase.

A complex predicate forms a single complex lexical unit for which an appropriate. Complex predicates are multi-predicational, but monoclausal structures.

This is a revised and updated version of Butt (), which noted that the study of light verbs and complex predicates is fraught with dangers and misunderstandings that go beyond the merely terminological.This book offers a comprehensive investigative study of argument realisation in complex predicates and complex events at the syntax-semantic interface across a wide variety of the world’s languages, ranging over languages such as German, Irish, Sicilian and Italian, Lithuanian, Estonian and other Finno-Ugric languages, Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra from Australia’s.
