Project

In search of the Analytical Resultative Construction. A microtypological comparison of Romance and Germanic languages.

This project is looking for (traces of) the resultative verbal construction (Ed hammers the metal flat) in 3 Romance (French, Spanish, Romanian) and 1 German (Dutch) language, in order to capture the microtypological variation w.r.t. lexical scope and productivity of the construction, against the background of other typological properties of these languages.
