Вaлентность Mестa – Цели у глaголов со знaчением кaузировaнного перемещения

Prace Filologiczne. 2017. Т. LXX. С. 89-99.

The paper addresses the phenomenon of double semantic roles (Goal-Place), which act as two possible realizations of the same semantic valency and cause morphosyntactic variation in its expression – accusative and prepositional case, respectively. The paper attempts to determine semantic classes of verbs characterized by this type of semantic structure, as well as identify the shifts in interpretation, which occur in each of the two possible morphosyntatic realizations. The study demonstrates that double semantic roles and the ensuing morphosyntactic variation are typical primarily for caused motion verbs of semantically liminal classes, which combine the semantics of caused motion with other components, such as placement, deformation, creation of an image. There are certain semantic peculiarities typical of each of the realizations. For example, the role of Place calls for nouns with the meaning of spaces or large surfaces, but not containers; the role of Goal calls for containers or small surfaces.
