Abstract

In this article I analyze three complements that are difficult to classify in traditional grammar: the complement of manner, location and measure or quantity selected by a verbal predicate. Considering that, traditionally, the learning of grammatical content in secondary school is fundamentally based on the labeling of constituents from a finite set of possible grammatical functions, these complements go beyond the traditional available categories. Specifically, these complements are generally classified as adjuncts, even though syntactically they have properties that make them like arguments. In this article, I argue that these complements are predicates that combine with semantically unspecific stative verbs to form a kind of complex predicate that allows the characterization of the subject.
