Abstract:The systematic differences between the resultative constructions in Germanic languages and those in Romance languages have posed numerous problems, many of which still constitute the ground for heated debates among linguists from various theoretical backgrounds. Changing the point of view largely adopted in the literature, centered on the existence/non-existence of AP resultatives in Germanic, respectively Romance languages we argue in this paper that there are AP resultatives in Romanian, but only if they are built on accomplishment-type verbs. English resultative constructions can be built on activity, as well as accomplishment-type verbs; whereas Romanian allows only resultatives built on accomplishment verbs.
Key words:resultative construction, EPS, causative constructions, activity-type verb, accomplishment-type verb, aspect, telicity
Language: English
