Remarks on a novel LFG approach to spatial particle verb constructions in Hungarian
In the paper, first we present the essence of our recent analysis of Hungarian particle verb constructions. The main goal of the paper is to explore the nature, consequences and ramifications of this approach in a detailed comparison with certain salient previous accounts which are directly relevant to the assessment of our account from a general theoretical perspective. We claim that our approach, developed in the framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar, has the following two main advantages: (i) it systematically covers both the productive and the non-productive uses of these constructions by offering explicit, principled and implementationally tested analyses; (ii) it develops a treatment of the notoriously miscreant behaviour of particle verbs exhibiting a special mixture of strongly lexical and strongly syntactic properties which, in addition to its feasibility, requires the least dramatic modification in our general assumptions about the lexical and syntactic components of our grammar.
