Variable Assignment and Meaning Enrichment with Non-Finite Constructions and Other Embedded Structures
During the first and the second funding phase, the main topic of our project was the meaning constitution with participle and infinitival structures, mostly in embedded positions. Our leading question was how the semantic correlates of the missing morphological features are filled in and how the embedded non-finite structure benefits from its host. As many of our insights require a comparison with finite structures, in the third phase we will extend our view to embedded structures in general. More precisely, we will investigate the specific properties of syntactic, semantic and pragmatic embedding.
