Description

This chapter has been devoted to the analysis of Persian adjectival light verb constructions. To fulfil this objective and to provide the ground for the main analysis of the adjectival complex predicates, the adjective types in terms of two major parameters, namely, modification and predication are investigated. On the basis of these two adjective classes, the architecture of the Persian adjective system is described. Chapter four explores the argument and event structure of these constructions. It also presents the nexus-juncture linkage type and the constructional schemas for the two major types of adjectival LVCs, formalizing the syntactic, morphological, semantic and pragmatic features of these constructions and highlighting their differences with regard to syntactic and semantic characteristics.
