Abstract:

The relationship between the meaning of words and the structure of
sentences is an important area of research in linguistics. Studying the
connections between lexical conceptual meaning and event structural
relations, this book arrives at a modular classification of verb types
within English and across languages. Ramchand argues that lexical
encyclopedic content and event structural aspects of meaning need to be
systematically distinguished, and that thematic and aspectual relations
belong to the latter domain of meaning. The book proposes a syntactic
decompositional view of core verbal meaning, and sets out to account for
the variability and systematicity of argument structure realisation across
verb types. It also proposes a novel view of lexical insertion.
