Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This seminar will focus on the properties of psych(ological verbs) (e.g. fear, frighten, please). Taking as a point of departure, Landau's discussion of the special character of these verbs, we will describe their behavior within a language and across languages and discuss possible syntactic analyses of their properties.
