Case Marking on the Internal Argument and Lexical Aspect

Case Marking on the Internal Argument and Lexical Aspect

(p.50) 3 Case Marking on the Internal Argument and Lexical Aspect
Case and Aspect in Slavic

Kylie Richardson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter demonstrates that in the Slavic languages the accusative case arises on the internal argument of a ‘base’ verb whose event structure (lexical/semantic aspect) is compositional, whereas lexical case-marking occurs with atelic base verbs whose event structure is never compositional. A syntactic analysis is provided to account for this pattern.

Keywords:   accusative case, lexical case, lexical/semantic aspect, event structure, telicity, internal argument, unaccusatives, prefixation, syntax, phi-features
