Using Templates to Account for English Resultatives

Elizabeth Christie


Link to pdf of paper

This paper attempts to account for the English Resultative through the use of templates in Lexical Functional Grammar. This account will involve the use of LFG templates as an interface between the syntax and semantics and employ Glue Semantics as a logical means to combine the components. It will introduce two new templates for the data, and attempt to show how the notions introduced by Asudeh et al. (2008) can be extended to fit the resultative without having to introduce any new formal mechanisms.
