The purpose of the workshop is to compare current research on
at least three different types of complex predicates, including
the light verb type, the particle type, and the serial verb type.
We hope to establish to what extent this tripartition accurately
characterizes the possibilities for complex predicate types crosslinguistically,
and to what extent they can be or should be unified.
