Dear All,
I would be grateful for suggestions of recent literature on what Masha in her classic work 'Nominalizations' (1993) calls 'action nominal constructions' (ANCs), in particular when such constructions fulfil the role of a finite verbal complement as in the contrast between 'he reported the enemy's destruction of the city' vs 'he reported that the enemy had destroyed the city'. All suggestions gratefully received. Either post the responses here or email me privately. I'll provide a summary of the responses in due course.
Thanks in advance for your help.
