Abstract: Have/Take/Give a V structures, e.g. have a go, give something a try), and Preposition-Determiner-Predicate structures, e.g. on the go, on the move)are implemented in English, but there are no counterpart structures in Greek. Even in English, the incorporation of a V in NP position, as in the structures above, is restricted. The aim of this paper is to elaborate on the word class to which the predicate of the structures belongs. This would contribute to a better understanding of the relevant structures, and word classes in general.
