TitleThe Role of Verb Meaning in the Calculation of Aspectual Interpretations
AbstractA compositional approach to semantic interpretation bases itself on the contribution of each individual lexical and morphological item contained in a sentence. This paper focuses on the role of the dictionary meaning of verbs in the compositional approach to aspect. Lexicography can benefit from the analysis proposed as it makes it possible to better distinguish the semantics intrinsic to a particular verb from the semantics of its syntactic context.
