Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to classify Italian adjectives that have the predicative function and accept a complement clause () or an infinitive () in or . For the formation of the word list, we have used electronic dictionaries from the “DELA” system in use in the Department of Communication Sciences at the University of Salerno (now Department of Political and Communication Sciences) and De Mauro Dictionaries (2000a and 2000b).

34,132 adjectives of the Nooj list have been examined. The acquired data have been subjected to further verifications in order to obtain the adjectives responding to the basic theoretical hypothesis. The adjectives have been classified according to the principles of Lexicon-Grammar methodology as developed by Maurice Gross (19751981 and further). The result was a list of 1,732 entries relating to 1,619 adjectives classified in 10 classes.
