Syntactic autonomy and result clauses

Abstract [en]

In this paper I look at whether the syntactic properties of the result clause construction in English can be predicted from its semantic properties. I adopt the semantics of Meier (2000, 2003) which treats the construction as having a hidden conditional meaning. The structure she proposes makes predictions for the syntactic properties of result clauses that are not fulfilled, in that different degree words are associated with different structures. I propose structures that are not strictly compositional.
