2 firstly look, the interdependence among the actual parts of those expressions turns out to defy general constraints at the PP constitution of German; on studying PPs concerning P1 N 1 P2 sequences corresponding to in Verbindung mit (‘in connection with’) within the contexts exemplified in (2), we will realize many transformations in comparison to conventional PPs. (2) In Verbindung mit diesem challenge will ich bemerken, dass ... in reference to this challenge wish I notice that ‘In reference to this challenge, i need to indicate that ... ’ to begin with, the noun Verbindung (‘connection’) can't mix with a determiner, a quantifier, a possessive pronoun or a prenominal genitive (3a). Secondly, it can't be transformed (3b). ultimately, the PP mit diesem challenge (’with this problem’) can't be passed over (cf. 3c). (3a) * in einer/ der/ seiner/ Peters Verbindung mit diesem challenge in a/ the/ his/ Peter’s reference to this challenge (3b) in *enger/ *unerwarteter [Verbindung mit diesem challenge] *von dieser Woche/ *die uns betrifft, will ich ... in shut/ unforeseen [connection with this challenge] from this week/ which us issues wish I Combinatorial facets of Collocational Prepositional words 183 (3c) in Verbindung will ich ... in connection wish I in response to those observations, it's always assumed that the string in Verbindung mit (‘in connection with’) is a fancy lexical signal (cf. the constitution in (4) supplied for these PPs through (Fries, 1988)). (4)[Pƍ[ P[P in] [N Verbindung] [P mit]] [NP diesem Problem]] The preposition heading the total word is a projection of 3 lexical different types which jointly shape a posh lexical class, consequently a preposition in Verbindung mit (‘in connection with’). This advanced preposition then selects an NP forming a prepositional word. the most challenge with this research is composed within the assumption that the preposition mit (‘with’) belongs to the complicated preposition and can't shape a constituent with the NP diesem challenge (‘this problem’). in spite of the fact that, there are a number of facts demonstrating the other. first of all, the mixtures P2 NP the place P2 is learned through von (‘of’) could be changed by means of the genitive; this alternative of von (‘of’) adheres to the constraints on distribution of postnominal genitives and von-PPs in German (5a). Secondly, the sequences in query might be substituted by way of wo-/da- expressions as in (5b), that are frequently regarded as proforms for PPs. those observations suggest that the P2 NP sequences shape a constituent. (5a) an Hand von zwei Beispielen/ zweier Beispiele through examples/ examplesGE N ‘by technique of examples’ (5b) in Verbindung womit/ damit in connection WO_with/ DA_ with ‘in reference to what/with it’ Taking all earlier observations under consideration, one could finish that inside a P1 N 1 P2 NP expression the P2 NP is lexically chosen via N 1, yet discovered as a syntactic sister of a P1 N 1 advanced. 1. 2 elevating research in keeping with the above generalization, (Trawi´nski, 2003) offers an research for those expressions utilizing the elevating mechanism.
