Compositional Semantics of German Prefix Verbs

Maria Wolters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

A compositional account of the semantics of German prefix verbs in HPSG is outlined. We consider only those verbs that are formed by productive synchronic rules. Rules are fully productive if they apply to all base verbs which satisfy a common description. Prefixes can be polysemous and have separate, highly underspecified lexical entries. Adequate bases are determined via selection restrictions.
