Reconsidering the History of "Like."
Allen, Cynthia L.
Journal of Linguistics, v22 n2 p375-409 Sep 1986
Traces the historical changes of the verb "like" and shows how the verb's role in Modern English has a greater influence in syntax as opposed to semantics. This change in the verb's function has led to the formation of a new lexical subcategorization frame, or redefinition of the verb. (TR)
