Nouns, Verbs and NP Complements.
Platt, J. T.
This paper investigates restrictions on three types of noun-phrase complements (gerundive, infinitive, clause) in English and seeks to point out some parallels between the occurrence of these three types in object positions. The author first presents a list of verbs which may be followed by noun-phrase complements; he then considers the occurrence of prepositions after the nominalized forms or nouns related to the verbs in the first list. A charting of co-occurrence possibilities in each case permits generalizations and categorization of particular behaviors. (VM)
