Abstract:

Applicative Arguments: A Syntactic and Semantic Investigation of German and
English presents formal semantic and syntactic analyses of German and English
applicative arguments. These arguments are nominal elements that are not
obligatory parts of a sentence. Both German and English have several types of
applicative arguments, including so-called benefactive and malefactive
constructions. More specifically, the research relies on tests to
differentiate the different types of applicative arguments based on this
contribution to meaning: Some applicatives contribute only not-at-issue
meaning, whereas others contribute only at-issue meaning, and still others
contribute both types of meaning. These tests are applied to both German and
English to uniquely identify the applicative arguments in each language.
Formal analyses of the identified type of applicative arguments are presented
that provide an account for each type of applicative identified for each
language, explaining the applicatives’ differences and similarities.
