(Functional Grammar Series 25)

Within the framework of Functional Grammar, the present monograph
tackles one of the most pervasive issues in linguistic theory today,
i.e. that of the representation of argument structure. Since the
inception of Functional Grammar in 1978, argument representations
configured as predicate frames have remained almost totally
unchallenged. The book devotes extensive attention to new themes that
will spawn future research in the lexical semantics of Functional
Grammar. It will thus be of interest to theoretical and computational
linguists interested in lexical semantics and Functional Grammar, as
well as to cognitive scientists and lexicographers.
