"There" Constructions in English and German
Erdmann, Peter
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, 16, 3, 187-211, Aug 78
Lexical differences between English and German in "there" constructions are examined. Contrastive evidence is also examined to propose analyses for certain troublesome types of "there" constructions in English. The descriptive approach attempts to show that the structuring of information in "there" sentences is dependent on lexical features of the predicate. (SW)
