講演題目: Resultatives and the Problem of Exceptions

講演内容
 English resultatives are secondary predicates indicating the result of the action described by the primary predicate, e.g. ‘Sue hammered the metal flat’ entails that the metal became flat as a result of the hammering. The adjectives used in such constructions are conditioned by lexicosemantic factors: gradable adjectives with an inherent maximum are strongly favored (Wechsler 2001, 2005). Exceptions have been noted (Broccias 2003, Iwata 2008). But a statistical analysis of corpus data confirms that the correlation is highly significant. The problem of exceptions is addressed by means of a multi-factorial approach, which is argued to be a good way to analyze lexical syntax.
