Abstract

This paper explores the encoding of the concepts of transfer, let/allow and permission with give, put, take, get, let and permit verbs of Modern Irish and issues with syntactic construction patterns, argument realisation, event chaining and complex multi-verb clauses. These concepts are explored as part of the dimensions of causation, direct and indirect, with other factors such as control over causer/causee in causal event chaining in complex clauses. In such complex constructions the multiple events are embedded and arguments shared across verbs in nexus juncture relations and we characterise these for Modern Irish. The paper addresses the mapping at the semantic-syntactic interface across these verbs and is presented within a functional characterisation.
