Maximality and Idealized Cognitive Models: The Complementation of Spanish "Tener."
Hilferty, Joseph; Valenzuela, Javier
Language Sciences, v23 n4-5 p629-37 Jul-Sep 2001
Discusses the bare-noun phrase (NP) complementation pattern of the Spanish verb "tener" (have). Shows that the maximality of the complement NP is dependent upon three factors: (1) idiosyncratic valence requirements; (2) encyclopedic knowledge related to possession; and (3) contextualized semantic construal.
