Dik and his co-workers. the amount starts with an eminently sensible part at the Functional-Lexematic version, a lexicological and lexicographical method which has mostly been encouraged by way of Dik’s precept of stepwise lexical decomposition. as well as a theoretical advent to the version, functions to English, German and Spanish are provided. the second one a part of the amount offers with the derivation of action-nouns, pseudo-reflexive verbs and causative buildings, therefore delivering new views on predicate formation inside sensible Grammar. this is often by means of a bit that centres round an incredible challenge on the topic of valency which in past times has had virtually no realization inside sensible Grammar: the query of the way to account for the collocational homes of predicates. The fourth a part of the e-book discusses (non-prototypical) transitive verbs and their relation to the typology of states of affairs, which results in proposals of attainable variations of Dik’s typology. the ultimate part focusses at the courting among the lexicon and the underlying constitution of the clause. 3 proposals of various levels of radicalism are offered to re-examine this relation.
