The present volume is centered around five linguistic themes: argument structure and encoding strategies; argument structure and verb classes; unexpressed arguments; split intransitivity; and existential and presentational constructions. The articles also cover a variety of typologically different languages, and they offer new data from under-researched languages on the issues of event and argument structure. In some cases novel perspectives from widely discussed languages on highly debated topics are offered, also addressing more theoretical aspects concerning the predictability and derivation of linking. Several contributions apply current models of the lexicon–syntax interface to synchronic data. Other contributions focus on diachrony and are based on extensive use of corpora. Yet others, although empirically and theoretically grounded, privilege a methodological discussion, presenting analyses based on thorough and long-standing fieldwork.

Table of Contents
“This collection of papers covers a wide spectrum of linguistic phenomena connected with argument realization, both synchronically and diachronically. It features a mix of contributions by renowned specialists in the field, and by younger researchers, providing unconventional insights often achieved through new methodologies into one of the most discussed issues in modern linguistics.”
“This volume is an intellectually rich and authoritative inquiry into the many facets – syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic – of variation and change in argument realization and event structure. It it unique for the breadth of research, for the multiplicity of theoretical perspectives, and for the range of languages and linguistic domains represented. The volume will stand out for a long time as a standard reference not only for its primary linguistics readership but also for researchers in other cognitive and computational fields who wish to become better informed about the complexities of argument structure.”
