Resultative Verb Compounds.
Ross, Claudia
Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association, v25 n3 p61-83 Oct 1990
Demonstrates that structure and interpretation of Resultative Verb Compound (RVC) in the field of Chinese linguistics is neither indiosyncratic nor pragmatically determined as suggested in an earlier study. Rather, RCV formation and interpretation is determined by semantic features of verbs, and these features determine the well-formedness and range of meaning of RVCs in simple and predictable ways.
