The paper examines two typologies of predicates found in the literature, put forward for languages other than Polish, mostly English, Spanish, Russian, and French. The first typology goes back to Milsark (1974) and Carlson (1977), who argue for dividing predicates into individual level and stage level. The former roughly correspond to stable properties, the latter to the transient ones. The distinction has its manifestations in syntax and semantics. The paper shows that the dichotomy is also…

Two subject positions in Scottish Gaelic: The syntax-semantics interface

This paper examines the stage-level/individual-level hypothesis (Kratzer 1989; Diesing 1988) from the point of view of modern Scottish Gaelic. This language exhibits two syntactically distinct

Predicational, Specificational, Equative and Identificational Copular Clauses in English and Polish

The paper confronts the typology of copular sentences proposed by Higgins (1979) for English with the Polish data. Higgins distinguishes in English four types of copular sentences, such as

Individuals in time

This monograph investigates the temporal properties of those predicates referring to individuals – the so-called individual-level (IL) predicates – in contrast to those known as stage-level (SL)

WHAT SECONDARY PREDICATES IN RUSSIAN TELL US ABOUT THE LINK BETWEEN TENSE, ASPECT AND CASE

In this paper I show that the different case marking possibilities on predicate adjectives in depictive secondary predicates in Russian constitute the uninterpretable counterpart of the interpretable

On adjectives and adverbs expressing ‘nakedness’ and ‘barefootedness’ in Polish and Russian: a study on morphosyntactic variation

In Polish and Russian, adjectives and adverbs occur in several syntactic functions, among others as adjuncts (i.e. as ‘secondary predicates’ and as adverbials) and, in copula clauses, as (primary)

The Generative Lexicon

It is argued that lexical decomposition is possible if it is performed generatively and a theory of lexical inheritance is outlined, which provides the necessary principles of global organization for the lexicon, enabling us to fully integrate the authors' natural language lexicon into a conceptual whole.

Stage levels, states, and the semantics of the copula

It is argued that instead of a uniform stage-level/individual level distinction the authors have to distinguish several similar but independent contrasts, none of which crucially depend on the semantics of the copula.
