Multiple analysis and gradience in N1 TrV N2 to V N3 constructions in English
Univeristy of Niš, Faculty of Philosophy, Serbia
Keywords: category; constituent; criteria; gradient
The paper first explores the ways the N1 TrV N2 to V N3 construction in English can be interpreted functionally: as a monotransitive, ditransitive and complextransitive one. Then it moves on to show how such an analysis can be further refined by checking the verb groups appearing in this construction against a set of relevant criteria.
