This booklet is worried with a category of copular clauses often called specificational clauses, and its relation to other forms of copular constructions, predicational and equative clauses specifically. in keeping with proof from Danish and English, I argue that specificational clauses contain an analogous center predication constitution as predicational clauses ― one that combines a referential and a predicative expression to shape a minimum predicational unit ― yet vary in how the predicational middle is learned syntactically.

We believe that the main reason has to do with how close Italian and English are, both typologically and geographically. A brief overview of other European languages, such as French, Spanish, and German, shows that all of them share a 31 32 Martina Johnson and Alessandro Lenci similar way of structuring the lexical domain of perception into three groups of verbs, which may be represented by the Perception_experience, Perception_ active and Appearance frames. These languages (as well as Greek) also share very similar argument structures for verbs of visual perception; for instance, they all share constructions similar in form and meaning to the one realized by I saw a man cross/crossing the road, which are often called “perception verb complements” in the literature.
