Title:Go-and-V, come-and-V, go-V and come-V: A corpus-based account of deictic movement verb constructions
Abstract:The present paper aims to complement recent work on deictic movement verb constructions by using a corpus-based approach to identify differences between the four deictic movement verb constructions: go-and-V, come-and-V, go-V and come-V, and to evaluate the proposal made in Nicolle (2007) that go/come-V developed from go/come-and-V in the context of imperative clauses. It will be shown that this is a possible scenario for the development of go-V from go-and-V, although come-V may have developed by analogy with go-V rather than independently from come-and-V. Finally, subjectification will be proposed as a motivating factor in the development of both go-V and come-V.
