Studies in the Composition and Decomposition of Event Predicates free pdf This detailed, perceptive addition to the linguistics literature analyzes the semantic components of event predicates, exploring their fine-grained elements as well as their agency in linguistic processing. The papers go beyond pure semantics to consider their varying influences of event predicates on argument structure, aspect, scalarity, and event structure. The volume shows how advances in the linguistic theory of event predicates, which have spawned Davidsonian and neo-Davidsonian notions of event arguments, in addition to 'event structure' frameworks and mereological models for the eventuality domain, have sidelined research on specific sets of entailments that support a typology of event predicates. Addressing this imbalance in the literature, the work also presents evidence indicating a more complex role for scalar structures than currently assumed. It will enrich the work of semanticists, psycholinguists, and syntacticians with a decompositional approach to verb phrase structure.

About Boban Arsenijevic

Boban Arsenijevic is a Ramon y Cajal researcher at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas in Madrid. His interests cover different topics in syntax and semantics, including the issues of verbal aspect, clausal embedding, the nature of and mutual relations between syntactic categories and the comparative cognitive status of natural language. Berit Gehrke is a Juan de la Cierva researcher at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. She is interested in semantics and the syntax-semantics interface and has worked on topics related to event predicates, time and space, the kind-token distinction, and modification. Rafael Marin (Ph.D in linguistics, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, 2001) is researcher of linguistics at the laboratory STL (UMR 8163), CNRS / Universite de Lille 3. His work focuses on lexical aspect and related phenomena. He has mainly worked on stativity, non-verbal predication (nominalizations, adjectives and participles, copular constructions) and psychological predicates.
