    Aquesta tesi investiga la interpretació de les frases amb el verb have en anglès. Aquest verb ha generat una gran quantitat de literatura en tots els àmbits de la lingüística, sense que s'hagi arribat a cap consens sobre ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Gehrke, Berit (De Gruyter, 2019)
    The syntactic literature on idioms contains some proposals that are surprising from a compositional perspective. For example, Sportiche (2005) and Cecchetto and Donati (2015) propose that, in the case of verb-object idioms, ...
  • Marín, Rafael; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Springer, 2011)
    In this paper we argue that by making a careful distinction between the notions of inchoativity and telicity, we can gain new insight/ninto how changes of state can be expressed in natural language. Our argument is based ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Baroni, Marco; Pham, Nghia The; McNally, Louise, 1965- (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2013)
    Distributional semantics has very successfully modeled semantic phenomena at the word level, and recently interest has grown in extending it to capture the meaning of phrases via semantic composition. We present experiments ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Presses universitaires de Vincennes, 2005)
    Formal semanticists of natural language have traditionally worked with/nrelatively impoverished lexical representations and have generally been/nconservative in drawing the line between those aspects of interpretation ...
  • Grimm, Scott; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC), 2013)
    Syntacticians have widely assumed since [11] that there is a fundamental difference between so-called argument structure nominals (AS-nominals, also called Complex Event Nominals), e.g. destruction, and non-AS-nominals, ...
  • Ignjatović, Mihajlo (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2016-01-29)
    This dissertation contains three studies, which explore various questions about verbal aspect and how it is affected by the process of nominalization. The first study examines the type of regular eventive nominalizations ...
  • Grimm, Scott; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Annual Reviews Inc, 2022)
    Nominalization (e.g., sleeping, that we slept, sleepiness) allows speakers to refer and ascribe properties to whatever sorts of entities clauses, verbs, or adjectives typically denote. Characterizing these relatively ...
  • Van Geenhoven, Veerle; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Elsevier, 2005)
    In this paper, we regard Zimmermann’s/n(1993) property analysis of verbs of absence as a/nspecial case of the/nindependent ability of verbs to take property-type complements (see Ladusaw, 1994)./nBy integrating into this ...
  • García Odón, Amaia (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2012-09-28)
    In this dissertation, I deal with the problem of presupposition projection. I mostly focus on compound sentences composed of two clauses and conditional sentences in which the second clause carries a presupposition. The ...
  • Shimoyoshi, Ayumi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2016-04-18)
    Psych verbs display variations in the argument realization and this has been problematic for the theories that assume a uniform relationship between semantic properties and syntactic configurations. This dissertation ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Swart, Henriëtte de, 1961- (Springer, 2015)
    Many languages offer a surprisingly complex range of options for referring to entities using expressions whose main descriptive content is contributed by an adjective, such as Dutch de blinde ‘the blind (person),’ het ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Boleda, Gemma (Colloque de Syntaxe et Sémantique à Paris, 2004)
  • Kennedy, Christopher; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Linguistic Society of America, 2005)
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013)
    The fields of semantics and pragmatics are devoted to the study of conventionalized and context - or use - dependent aspects of natural language meaning, respectively. The complexity of human ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Grimm, Scott (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2015)
    The nature of -ing nominals has been widely debated since the early days of generative grammar (e.g. Lees 1960, Chomsky 1970), and at least since Vendler (1967), -ing forms also have played a central role in debates over ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Asociación Española de Estudios Anglo-Norteamericanos (AEDEAN), 1998)
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Springer, 2011)
    Kennedy (2007) proposes a semantics for positive form adjectives on which the standard for ascribing an adjective A makes the individuals that are A stand out from those that are not. To account for the di erences between ...
