Title: Ontology and argument structure in nominalizations
Issue Date: 2013 Arbeitspapier
Series/Report no.: SinSpeC - Working Papers of the SFB 732 "Incremental Specification in Context";10
Abstract: Based on data from German -ung nominalizations, I argue that selection restriction tests are not suitable as linguistic tools for ontological disambiguation. Consequently, I question the significance of ontology as a starting point for linguistic theorizing. Instead, I argue for an underspecified account of the ontology of nominalizations, in which disambiguation looses its central role in the commerce with ambiguity.
