Contrastive Verb Valency and Conceptual Structures in the Verbal Lexicon.
Devos, Filip; And Others
Language Sciences, v18 n1-2 p319-38 Jan-Apr 1996
Reports on research consisting of compiling a contrastive verb valency dictionary of Dutch, French, and English whose main strength lies in depicting semantic differences between its entries and conceptual differences between languages. Using these analyses, one can start to discern nuclear and peripheral meanings, analyze possible meaning extensions, and try to bridge the gap between (morpho-) syntax and semantics.
