Abstract
[Introduction:] This paper focusses on non-finite verb forms in English, which I will refer to, following Langacker, as verbal formal schemata. I wish to propose an alternative model of three basic verbal forms compared to Langacker’s characterization, which takes into account and further corroborates the interpretation of the instantiating complex of the clausal syntagm as also including the Subject role, in addition to specifications of time, as argued by Davidse (1997, 1998), and further fleshed out in Taverniers (2005). The paper is organized in two parts: in §2 I briefly discuss Langacker’s model of the clausal syntagm and verbal root forms, and present arguments for a different characterization of three verbal formal schemata in English. In §3, the various categorial modi (verb, adjective, noun) into which verbal root forms enter are explored.
