Har dansk produktive postpositioner?

  • Michael Nguyen

Resumé

In this paper, I argue that a number of elements in Danish have postpositional properties and could be regarded as postpositions. Since the particle construction and the postpositional construction have the same word order (NP < particle/postposition), it is necessary to distinguish between the two constructions. For this purpose, I introduce four syntactic tests. I examine the empirical data and argue that the postpositional elements come in two shapes: they either express (i) directionality (goal and source) or (ii) temporal and physical spaces.
