Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Nonverbal predicates in Modern Hebrew (MH) have been the subject of
investigation in a number of studies. However, to our knowledge, none of
them was corpus-based. Corpus searches reveal that the nonverbal constructions which are most commonly addressed in the literature are not the most
commonly used ones. Once a broader range of data is considered additional
issues are raised. Our analysis addresses these issues, unifying the treatment
of three types of copular constructions that we identify in MH. The analysis
is implemented as part of a larger-scale grammar, and is extensively tested.
