This book offers a new account of particle verbs in German and Dutch
by looking at the conditions under which a non-morphological structure
may exhibit "word-like" properties. It shows that although particles
are represented as phrasal complements of their verbs, they lack the
functional structure which is usually associated with phrases. The
author uses the concept of a "local-domain", which can be established
by terminal nodes both in syntax and in morphology, to demonstrate why
the impoverished syntactic structure of particle verbs shares
important features of complex words derived in morphology. The
analysis is substantiated through a detailed study of the syntactic,
semantic, and morphological properties of particle verbs. Special
attention is given to the relevance of local domains for the
association of lexical information about sound and meaning with
terminal nodes in morphological and syntactic structures.
