The usage of the verbal -ne and the periphrastic
construction -mE + Px + suas were compared in contemporary Mari online media and literature.
Specifically, we used lexical and periphrastic
constructions as verbal instructions in a visual causal judgment task and observed the hemodynamic activity in Brocas area during the processing of visual causal and non-causal events that followed the verbal instructions.
With regard to the data from Puerto Rican Spanish, the interviewees also prefer dynamic predicates in periphrastic
constructions with -ndo (81%) (Table 5).
In my view, a low degree of conceptual integration between the component parts of the periphrastic

Silic and Pranjkovic's (2005: 188-189) set reveals that their choice of periphrastic
verbs covers a much wider range of usages and structures than the proposed set of prototypical light verb constructions we opted for initially, as well as there are many constructions for which there obtains no equivalent single verb form, e.g.
While stative verbs like want and think do not take the progressive form in Standard English, they must be expressed by the periphrastic
construction in Scottish Gaelic, when used in the present tense; 'This gives us one reason to retreat from the use of the term 'progressive' for the periphrastic
construction' (Ramchand 1997: 24).
a combination of a verb with a particular type of non-finite complement can acquire an aspectual or temporal meaning, giving rise to a new periphrastic
construction), they can become more productive (e.g.
Beholden to both histories, "Cinquecento Jewelry" appears bewilderingly periphrastic
except as an instance of the situation of workmanship under pressures from both classic and emerging meanings.
In the impersonal reflexive the clitic bears the subject grammatical function, but in the reflexive passive it is associated with a different one, much in the same way as the subject of a transitive sentence can also be realized as an oblique (a prepositional phrase headed by por 'by' in Spanish) in periphrastic
Other linguistic features discussed are, e.g., word order, vocabulary and phraseology, similes, periphrastic
expressions, and vocabulary (types of camels, pedigree and qualities of camels, types of falcon, types of rain and rainbringing clouds, and words for different pastures, hills and mountains).
His "defective" answer notwithstanding, Bloom gets away by substituting the missing information with "a periphrastic
