Quer zu den Feldern – Zur Topologie von Partikelverben 

Zurück zum Heft: Linguistische Berichte Heft 221



In a large subclass of German particle verbs P+V, P can only fill the prefield if it is immediately followed by V. We argue that this unexpected and largely unnoticed phenomenon is due to parsing problems that arise when P is separated from V by intervening constituents. In addition, we point out two other major problems in the syntax of particle verbs that still await a solution.
