ABSTRACT

When the argument and event structure of V1 and V2 are composed, they must share a Subject(Agent) argument. So it is mainly concerned about how their theme and location arguments are composed. The composition type falls into 5 types. Type I is the composition type of both verbs which take the Goal argument ‘egye’ and identical subevents. Type II is the case that the Goal arguments and subevents of V1 and V2 have relation in ‘part-whole’. Then the subevent of ‘part’ integrates into the subevent of ‘whole’. Type III is the composition type that V1 and V2 share their Theme argument and a Goal argument can be introduced in the construction of [V1+e+V2{cwu-ta}] by V2 ‘cwu-ta’. Type IV is only the composition type for event structure, which is the event resulted from the action of V1 is embedded in theme argument(y) of the event structure of V2. Finally, Type V is the case that the argument structure of V1 is maintained even though it is combined with V2 ‘cwu-ta’. It is found correspondence between these argument and event composition types. Furthermore, it can be certified correlation between syntactic-semantic structures based on these composition types.
