Linguistic LingField(s):  Semantics

Query:   I am just starting a project comparing the resultative in English and
Icelandic. I´d be grateful for input on the following:

1. Useful references on resultatives in the Nordic languages (including
Icelandic obviously!)

2. Recent seminal papers on theoretical analysis of resultatives (i.e. post
2000), esp very recent

3. Is the data in the 1993 Levin book ''English Verb Classes and
Alternations'' available in a tractable database form, i.e. queriable by
alternation and verb? I´m assuming there are copyright issues.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
