Middle English Verbs of Emotion and Impersonal Constructions: Verb Meaning and Syntax in Diachrony Ayumi Miura Abstract Impersonal constructions in the history of English form a puzzling category, in that there has been uncertainty as to why some verbs are attested in such constructions while others are not, even though they look almost synonymous.

They conclude p. For example, they let us know which features and sections are most popular. My main arguments against a passive analysis of non-actor focus clauses are: they exhibit a very high text frequency; the agent is typically overt and manifests some properties associated with syntactic arguments as opposed to adjuncts; they are semantically highly transitive in the sense of Hopper and Thompson ; and the verb does not exhibit special marking, as it is also explicitly marked in the actor focus construction.

Life is good in Merida. That is what makes them impersonal! Generally, it is not ideal to mix the impersonal pronoun one with another pronoun in the same sentence. Two papers deal specifically with meteorological predicates. Another typological issue discussed is the putative correlation of the type of impersonal with the pro-drop parameter Holmberg ; Siewierska shows that though in Europe the correlation mostly holds, the theory linking the presence of specific impersonal pronouns to the requirement of overt subject can account neither for the exact distribution of man-impersonals nor for the very existence of 3pl-impersonals.

Full use is made of modern linguistic approaches, including theories and methodologies adopted in the study of psych-verbs in modern languages. The book also effectively draws on categorizations in the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary and harnesses the online Middle English Dictionary in a novel way, demonstrating that dictionary materials can tell us about early English syntax and semantics much more than has generally been assumed in the literature.

Brandt, M. You can use impersonal expressions to talk about how things are done according to custom, rule, or general consensus. As this phenomenon could not have resulted from sufficient prior experience, it suggests the role of universal grammar.

What the editors, however, to my Impersonal constructions book have not done is to make the volume more coherent.This volume offers a much needed typological perspective on impersonal constructions, which are here viewed broadly as constructions lacking a referential subject. The contributions to this volume deal with all types of impersonality, namely constructions featuring nonagentive subjects, including those with experiential predicates (A-impersonals), presentational constructions with a notional.
