Predicational forms in English
This paper takes its start from a not so well-known 1984 paper by Henry Kučera “Computational Analysis of Predication Structures in English” which examines the expression of predication in the Brown corpus. We review the observations and insights in this paper and present a general analysis of the structure of predication forms in English, where we distinguish between three types of predication in terms of how the predicate of the sentence is expressed.
