Abstract:

This book provides substantial new results in a novel field of research 
examining the syntactic and semantic consequences of event structure. The 
studies of this volume examine the hypothesis that event structure 
correlates with word order, the presence or absence of the verbal 
particle, the [+/- specific] feature of the internal argument, aspect, 
focusing, negation, and negative quantification, among others. The results 
reported concern the telicising vs. perfectivizing role of the verbal 
particle; the syntactic and semantic differences of verbs denoting a 
delimited change, and those denoting creation or coming into being; 
evidence of viewpoint aspect in a language with no morphological viewpoint 
marking; the aspectual role of non-thematic objects; the source of 
the 'exhaustive identification' function of structural focus; the 
interaction of negation and aspect etc.
