Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of names, terms and concepts of multi-verb constructions. In many languages of the world, two or three verbs combine to form one predicate. The verbs vary in their form, and the resulting constructions vary in their functions and their meanings. Multi-verb constructions include serial verbs in their varied guises, predicates with an auxiliary verb or a converb, and many more kinds. Multi-verb constructions have been in the focus of linguistic analysis for a long time. They have been widely recognised as a prominent phenomenon in languages of the Americas.

Keywords:America; languages; multi-verb constructions
