Abstract

© 1992 by Walter de Gruyter & Co., D-1000 Berlin 30. All rights reserved. This monograph can be regarded as an exercise in what might be called applied Government-Binding (GB) Theory. It endeavours to describe an aspect of the syntax of the English language, Small Clauses (usually referred to as verbless clauses in the descriptive literature), on a more rigid theoretical basis than is often the case in more traditional approaches. The overall aim is not only to describe but also to explain the syntax of Small Clause constructions. Explaining why linguistic facts are as they are ultimately leads to a greater understanding of the language one is studying in particular, and all other languages more generally. This is because when one attempts to explain the facts, one is obliged to take account of the language system as a whole. I will discuss this point in more detail in chapter one. A more general aim of this monograph is to convince the reader that Small Clauses are big.
