Den engelske verbalfrases omfang og struktur

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Hjulmand & Schwarz (2009:32, 2012:33) (and many others) assume that "has concluded" constitutes a verb phrase (VP) in the example "The British car industry has concluded a deal with the Japanese government". I want to defend a different analysis, namely that "concluded" constitutes a VP together with the object, i.e. "The British car industry has concluded a deal with the Japanese government". In such an analysis, VPs are not limited to consist of only verbs, just like NPs may contain more than nouns and PPs more than prepositions. Another advantage of is a better account of examples like "Saved many a life at sea, they have". The VP-internal structural difference between arguments (e.g. objects) and adjuncts (e.g. adverbials) will also be discussed, as well as discontinuous VPs. Finally, the appendix will discuss the analysis of Danish.
