Example text

However, the event structure of some narrative SVCs is more complex than any single verb in English. 38 Pawley Bohnemeyer et al. (2007) and Bohnemeyer et al. ’ This has to do with whether the sub-events expressed by a construction can individually take operators marking temporal position (tenses, adverbials, temporal clauses). A construction expresses a macro-event if the sub-events it entails are not individuated temporally – in more formal terms, if and only if the time-positional or durational operators have scope over all sub-events that are represented in the construction.

Giv´on 1990: 48) 4 Logical problems with Giv´on’s position Giv´on’s experiment clearly demonstrates a strong correlation between patterns of pause placement in multi-verb constructions and degrees of grammatical (morphosyntactic) integration. The very low probability of internal pause in SVCs, compared with sequences of medial clauses and independent clauses, is consistent with the claim that verb series in SVCs are stored as a package in the long-term memory. These findings come as no surprise.

Adopting this criterion would mean treating as lexical items thousands of familiar sentences like I’m sorry to keep you waiting so long, I wouldn’t do that if I were you, or That was the last time I ever saw him. It may be true that each such sentence contains a formulaic core that is stored in the long-term memory but in many respects these expressions deviate from typical lexical items. And by defining ‘event segmentation’ solely in terms of breaks in the flow of speech Giv´on tacitly excludes from consideration the internal semantic structure of the fluent chunks.
