This book ex­am­ines var­i­ous lin­guis­tic phe­nom­e­na and de­ter­mines that cer­tain con­struc­tions should be treat­ed as com­plex pred­i­cates. Specif­i­cal­ly, the book ex­plores aux­il­iary and verb com­bi­na­tions in fu­ture, per­fect, and pas­sive con­struc­tions, causative con­struc­tions, verb com­plex con­struc­tions with rais­ing and con­trol verbs, sub­ject and ob­ject pred­ica­tives, de­pic­tive sec­ondary pred­i­cates (1), re­sul­ta­tive con­struc­tions (2), and par­ti­cle verb com­bi­na­tions. The prop­er­ties of all these con­struc­tions are stud­ied on a broad em­pir­i­cal basis, main­ly with data from Ger­man.
