Abstract

Looking at verb phrases (VPs) which contain both a direct object and a following preposition phrase (PP), e.g. lægge noget på bordet/nettet, ‘put something on the table/the web’, the picture is perhaps a little confusing. Data from coordination indicate that the object and the PP form a constituent which excludes the main verb, whereas data from idiomatic expressions point toward the main verb and the PP forming a constituent to the exclusion of the object.
However, these contradictory data can be reconciled by means of the analyses in Larson (1988) and Kratzer (1995), where the object and the PP are not taken to be on the same level in the syntactic structure. This analysis can also account for the fact that such VPs can be modified both by PPs which normally modify only atelic VPs (e.g. i to år ‘for two years’) and by PPs which normally modify only telic VPs (e.g. på to timer ‘in two hours’).
