Abstract:

The present book offers fresh insights into the description of ditransitive
verbs and their complementation in present-day English. In the
theory-oriented first part, a pluralist framework is developed on the basis
of previous research that integrates ditransitive verbs as lexical items
with both the entirety of their complementation patterns and the cognitive
and semantic aspects of ditransitivity. This approach is combined with
modern corpus-linguistic methodology in the present study, which draws on
an exhaustive semi-automatic analysis of all patterns of ditransitive verbs
in the British component of the International Corpus of English (ICE-GB)
and also takes into account selected data from the British National Corpus
(BNC). In the second part of the study, the complementation of ditransitive
verbs (e.g. give, send) is analysed quantitatively and qualitatively.
Special emphasis is placed here on the identification of significant
principles of pattern selection, i.e. factors that lead language users to
prefer specific patterns over other patterns in given contexts (e.g.
weight, focus, pattern flow in text, lexical constraints). In the last
part, some general aspects of a network-like, usage-based model of
ditransitive verbs, their patterns and the relevant principles of pattern
selection are sketched out, thus bridging the gap between the
performance-related description of language use and a competence-related
model of language cognition.
