It is a point of debate to what extent and according to which principles the syntactic behavior of verbs can be derived from their semantic representations and how it can be affected by lexical or syntactic operations. This collection of articles brings together insights from the research on verbs whose semantic structure has been made more complex by the incorporation of a particle, a prefix, a verbal or a nominal element. A list of the constructions and languages that are discussed includes particle and prefix verbs in English and German, resultative constructions in English, Danish and Spanish, psych verbs in English and German, and compound verbs in Greek, Chinese, and Persian.
