"Complex Predicates" examines a number of linguistic phenomena - including auxiliary verb combinations, causative constructions, predicatives, depictive secondary predicates, and particle and verb combinations - and uses scrambling and fronting data to determine that all except the depictive secondary predicates should be treated as complex predicates. Muller's analysis of inflection and derivation is compatible with syntactical analysis of particle verbs; as a byproduct, it also solves the particle verb bracketing paradox often discussed in the literature.
