Bare Aspect: A Theory of Syntactic Projection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

We present a theory of structure projection that identifies the properties of verbs that
determine syntactic structure; the result is a simplified aspectual classification. This
revised classification unifies di¤erent types of change events and, together with the
projection model in which it is formulated, accounts for a variety of linguistic phenomena, both syntactic and interpretive.
