Verb Clusters and Binding

The HPSG treatment of binding in [24] uses the notion o-command. This notion is defined in terms of the SUBCAT list. In this section we show that the subcategorization lists that surface in inheritance-based accounts are not the appropriate structures for the binding theory. We present an alternative account of binding to account for Dutch binding phenomena in verb raising constructions, on the basis of the feature ARG-S introduced by [11].
