  1. The Dual Analysis of Adjuncts/Complements in Categorial Grammar.David Dowty - manuscript
    The distinction between COMPLEMENTS and ADJUNCTS has a long tradition in grammatical theory, and it is also included in some way or other in most current formal linguistic theories. But it is a highly vexed distinction for several reasons, one of which is that no diagnostic criteria have emerged that will reliably distinguish adjuncts from complements in all cases — too many examples seem to fall into the crack between the two categories, no matter how theorists wrestle with them.

  6. The Semantic Assymmetry of 'Argument Alternations'.David Dowty - unknown
    Fish abound in the pond Garlic reeked on his breath The pond abounds with fish His breath reeked with garlic Such sentences were first noted in Jespersen, then were introduced in Generative Grammar by Fillmore and Anderson. The most extensive treatment, from which some of the data below is taken, is Salkoff’s ”Bees are Swarming in the Garden”, Language 59.2, 288-346; cf. also Boons & Leclere, and see Levin for further references. For convenience in referring to the two kinds of (...)

  8. Bound Anaphora and Type Logical Grammar.David Dowty - unknown
    (Though it is now known that many pronouns once lumped under ”bound variables” are in fact referential indefinites or other phenomena better accounted for in a DRT-like view of referents, there remain many true instances of sentenceinternally bound anaphora: this talk concerns only the latter.) Almost all versions of categorial grammar (CG) are differentiated from other syntactic theories in treating a multi-argument verb as an Ò-place predicate phrase (PrdP) that combines with a NP or other argument to yield a (Ò-1)-place (...)

  9. Nominal Thematic Proto-Roles.Chris Barker & David Dowty - unknown
    Let us suppose that thematic roles, or something very much like them, are needed to describe lexical and semantic patterns in the behavior of verbal predicates. But what about nouns? Is there evidence independent of verbal constructions motivating a system of nominal thematic relations? We suggest that the general problem of argument selection does in fact motivate a set of quintessentially nominal thematic proto-roles which we call Proto- Part and Proto-Whole. These nominal proto-roles are parallel to but distinct from the (...)
