Arguments and Modifiers in the Grammar and in the Lexicon Abstract

Author(s): Adam Przepiórkowski
Subject(s): Language studies, Eastern Slavic Languages
Published by: Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
Keywords: argument–adjunct; distinction; valency; Lexical Functional Grammar
Summary/Abstract: The monograph is concerned with the issue of distinguishing arguments (actants, complements) from modifiers (circumstants, adjuncts). While this distinction is widely assumed in contemporary linguistics (also in Polish grammars and valency dictionaries), it is difficult to define it operationally. The book questions the existence of this dichotomy and proposes an approach to the formal grammar and to the valency dictionary which does not rely on this distinction.
