By Ilona Sontag

Seminar paper from the 12 months 2008 within the topic English - Grammar, variety, operating process, grade: 1,7, RWTH Aachen collage (Institut für Anglistik ), direction: Syntactic Questions, 7 entries within the bibliography, language: English, summary: even though the assumption of valency isn't new within the box of linguistics, it sort of feels to have received
relatively little recognition in past times. Lucien Tesnière, who turned often called the developer of
the so referred to as “dependency grammar”, used to be one of many first linguists who defined the
capacity of a verb to bind a undeniable variety of “actants”1 (cf. Tesnière 1980, 385-386). In his
posthumously released publication “Eléments de syntaxe structurale”2 (1959) he referred to as this
phenomenon “valency”. afterward, different linguists followed his thought, transformed and tailored it.
One of those linguists is Peter Eisenberg, a German philologist, who wrote a few recent
works on grammar within which the function of verb valency is frequently within the heart of attention.
Because a interval of thirty years had handed because Tesnière’s first try and outline the
phenomenon of valency in linguistics, Eisenberg’s procedure is lots extra designated and
includes various standards for he had the chance to give a contribution his wisdom of other
theories that have been created after Tesnière’s booklet have been published.
This time period paper will draw a comparability of 2 works written via the authors mentioned
above with exact regard to the phrases that are depending on verbs. because the verb is often
in the heart of recognition while the concept of valency is worried, the gang of the other
words that are “governed” by way of the verb doesn't appear to be tested within the comparable way.
Furthermore there doesn't even appear to be a regular time period for such phrases (perhaps except
for “arguments” (cf. Meyer 2005, 30), yet even the idea of arguments is utilized in diverse
ways), in order that i'm going to use the be aware “dependents” to consult each attainable linguistic element
which could be sure by means of a verb.
The major target of this paper won't simply be to supply a small evaluation of dependents in
valency theories, but in addition to demonstrate the professionals and cons of every of those theories in a
comparison on the end.
To introduce the reader into the subject, a small assessment of the inspiration of valency will be
given first and foremost of the time period paper. afterward, crucial features concerning
dependents of either theories might be provided individually. After having in comparison the two
works, mentioned the most discrepancies and having acknowledged their merits respectively their
deficiencies, a last end could be given.
