Overview

Researchers in lexical semantics, logical semantics, and syntax have traditionally employed different approaches in their study of natural languages. Yet, recent research in all three fields have demonstrated a growing recognition that the grammars of natural languages structure and refer to events in particular ways. This convergence on the theory of events as grammatical objects is the motivation for this volume, which brings together premiere researchers in these disciplines to specifically address the topic of event structure. The selection of works presented in this volume originated from a 1997 workshop funded by the National Science Foundation regarding Events as Grammatical Objects, from the Combined Perspectives of Lexical Semantics, Logical Semantics and Syntax.
