    Independent evidence for the existence of empty expletives in German comes from the passive of verbs that check inherent case, as was discussed in Chapter In addition, German allows the passive of intransitive verbs. In both cases, illustrated in (18), the subject of the passive clause is an empty expletive with default singular number. complement to the verb suggest that the adverb is in fact the complement of the verb, predicating over it in a direct sisterhood configuration. (15) VP VAdv As a result, the verb in middle constructions is without a complement that could bound the action denoted by the verb (cf. Tenny ). Consequently, the accomplishment (or.

    Light verbs are extremely common in modern Indo-Iranian languages, Japanese, and other languages in which verb compounding is a primary mechanism for marking aspectual distinctions. Light verbs are also equivalent to inherent complement verbs in many Kwa languages, e.g. . the verb of (2d) represents a subclass of “inherent complement verbs” (cf. footnote 2 above). In this particular example, the “inherent complement” (IC) is a nominal based on the same stem as the verb itself. An IC differs from a “bound complement” (BC) in that it is a free noun, whereas BCs are dependent elements 2.

This paper examines the phenomenon of paratactic negation (PN) by analyzing the usage of the Finnish verb epäillä (‘doubt’, ‘suspect’, ‘suppose’), which is associated with both inherent negation and negative evaluation.

Paratactic negation refers to an overt negation in a complement clause of an inherently negative verb that results in a single negative reading. This book describes some of the most representative paths followed by different verbs of implicit negation and reveals the major complement shifts that have occurred throughout the history of English.

Verbs can also have both an object and complement at the same time. In these instances, the absence of the object or complement renders the whole sentence incomplete.

A complementary resultative specifies the result or outcome produced by a phrase’s verb. As a verbal complement, the result is made up of characters that are firmly bound to the right of the verb of the main clause, specifying the outcome.

Eventual particles or direct objects are positioned to the right of the complementary resultive.
