Original scientific paper
Annamaria Bene; University of Novi Sad Hungarian Language Teacher–training Faculty


In my paper I am discussing the newest analysis of verbal particles (É. Kiss, Katalin 2006. The function and the syntax of the verbal particle. In É. Kiss, Katalin ed., 2006. Event structure and the Left Periphery. Dordrecht: Springer.) which suggest that these function morphemes are to be analyzed as secondary predicates. My goal is to show, this approach should be revisited: by examining the verbal particles with regard to Hungarian secondary resultative predication we see that the role assigned to the verbal particle is not secondary predication, but mere delimitation. Further, it will become obvious that resultative phrases are not the phrasal counterparts of verbal particles.


verbal particle; delimiter; resultative phrase; secondary predication
