Abstract:[The Limit-Goal Difference Exemplified by până (la) and la. An Application to the Analysis of Resultative Constructions] The paper presents the distributional characteristics of two prepositional phrases (PP) headed by până (la) ‘until’ and la ‘to’ when these PPs express a Limit and a Goal, respectively, in movement contexts. We show that, in fact, these PPs are specialized to a great extent not only in movement events, but in other types of events as well. More precisely, PP-la is used to express verbal arguments in general, while PP-până (la) expresses limits on different participants in an event. If this limitation capacity of PP-până (la) combines with a change of state of a participant, then one gets a resultative construction. This is one of the important means by which Romanian builds such constructions, irrespective of the telic or atelic character of the verbal predicate.
