The term “argument structure” is used here to refer to the syntactic configuration projected by a lexical item. It is the system of structural relations holding between heads (nuclei) and arguments linked to them in the roster of syntactic properties listed for individual items in the lexicon. While a lexical entry is much more than this, of course, argument structure in the sense intended here is precisely this and nothing more.
