MTT meets Construction Grammar: the Treatment of Argument Structure


Weiss, D (2011). MTT meets Construction Grammar: the Treatment of Argument Structure. In: Boguslavsky, I; Wanner, L. Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory. Barcelona: Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 295-305.

Abstract

Construction grammar offers a valuable tool for handling certain tricky cases that provide a challenge to MTT. In this paper, two such cases are examined, viz. ‘hybrid’ uses of non- motion verbs in motion constructions and omissions of motion verbs resulting in verbless sentences. Finally, the procedure of how to incorporate a construction into the MTT framework is substantiated by means of verbs denoting a physical transfer (giving).
