Network of Auxiliary Verb Constructions in Wolof: a constructional account of sentence structure

Abstract : In her reference monograph, Goldberg (1995) investigates one of the most central issue of grammar, i.e. the relation between verbs and sentential constructions. However, as noticed by Kuzar (2012), while argument structure constructions play an important role in the formation of verbal sentences, they need a complementary linearization mechanism: the sentence pattern (S-pattern). In this paper, I will show how Wolof Predicative constructions provide data that question the concept of S-pattern.
