B01: Verb frames at the syntax-semantics interface

Funding period 1: 01.07.2011 – 30.06.2015

Funding period 2: 01.07.2015 – 30.06.2019

Project B01 is concerned with the interaction between morphosyntax and semantics in verb-based constructions. The particular focus of the project is on multi-predicate constructions which describe complex scenarios in such a way that they are conceived as coherent units. For these constructions, B01 aims at (i) a systematic account of the meaning structures that underlie these classes of scenarios; (ii) a cross-linguistic analysis of the various ways of describing complex coherent events by tight syntactic constructions; and (iii) a compositional model of the syntax-semantics interface of coherent event descriptions.
