Abstract

The article analyses English adjectival participles, arguing that (i) there is a previously unrecognized type of adjectival participle which expresses an in-progress situation; (ii) Themes in adjectival participles are initially merged outside the participle’s projection; (iii) the standard claim that adjectival participles lack implicit Agents is wrong; (iv) unaccusative-based and transitive-based participles are generated by distinct rules, suggesting that the latter are genuinely passive.
