Secondary Predicates in Italian and English.
Merlo, Paola
An analysis of the nature of secondary predicates takes a comparative approach, using Italian and English. Distributional properties and extraction facts are accounted for, and an explanation for the fact that resultatives are not allowed in Romance languages is sought on the basis of Italian evidence. It is argued that the semantic distinction between depictive and resultative predicates is mapped onto different syntactic structures. (MSE)
