Link Building Based On Verb Structure

In the case where both the 3rd and 4th subcomponents are present, ambiguity can occur as shown in Figure 2.6. In the first case the word “ of ” modifies “ wood ”, and in the second case the word “ of ” modifies “ table ”. This is a phrase that is both syntactically and semantically ambiguous. Both of these analyzes are correct. Which analysis is chosen depends on the context.

  • Nominative pronouns after the noun (position 2 or 4)

– Nouns with NtPd+ connections.

– Nominative pronouns with NtPd- connection.

For example , in the sentence “ these chairs are beautiful ” in figure 2.7 below

figure 2.7 . the links revolve around the central noun chair c. link nouns with prepositions the 2

Figure 2.7 . The links revolve around the central noun " chair "

c. Link nouns with prepositions

The link is established from the preposition to the noun (which can be the center of the noun), for example with the phrase " buy fish for this lazy cat ", the preposition " for " must be related to the noun. " cat ". The name of the link is EN+ for preposition, EN- for noun.

2.1.3. Links for verbs

Links for verbs are built in the same way as links with nouns. Based on the structure of the verb, conjunctions are also divided into two types: linking with the word standing to the left and linking with the word standing to the right of the main verb. Verbs acting as predicate

If the noun and the pronoun that act as the subject have an SV+ link to the verb as the predicate (the main part of the predicate), then the verb has an SV- link to the subject.

In addition, the relative verb ' is ' has a DT_LA- link to the subject.

Verbs are also related to question words. Like the English linking dictionary, the question word links to the main verb of the sentence. Depending on the type of question word, it is usually at the beginning or at the end of the sentence, but the link of the verb is THT or THS. When the question word already appears on the left side of the verb, it will not be possible for another question word to appear on the right. The formula for the verb shows this: THT- or THS+.

Links of words to ask:

why, why, who: THT+

where, how, right, what: THIS

Some other words can go before and after:

when, ever: THT+ or THS- Link building based on verb structure

Similar to nouns, according to Nguyen Tai Can [2], there are different opinions about the main composition of verbs, especially in the case of two verbs that go together like "want to eat". The thesis chooses the verb in front from the point of view of [2]. Thus, determining the links of verbs based on verb structure is divided into two main branches: linking the main verb with the preceding auxiliary element and with the following auxiliary element (possibly another verb). .

  • Link with the auxiliary element before the verb

The position before the verb is mainly reserved for the following types of auxiliary words:

  • Comparative adverbs Rc (" also ", " even ", " still ", " on ", " still ", " forever "... ). Words within the group can be combined, for example "still the same".
  • Negative adverbs Rn ( e.g. “ no ”, “ none ”, “ yet ”…), affirmative Ra (e.g. “ definitely  ”).
  • Adverbs of time: past, present, future

These adverbs go with all types of verbs.

According to the summary of Nguyen Tai Can [2], the positions before the verbs of these auxiliary verbs can be summarized in the diagram of Figure 2.8 as follows:

Comparative adverbs (Rc): even, also, still, everyAdverbs of time (Rt, Rp, Rf): used to, was, is, willNegative Adverbs (Rn): no, no, not yet
 Imperative Adverbs (Rm): don't, don'tImperative Adverbs (Rm): don't, don't

Links are established according to the diagram above for verbs:

{RnV-} &(({RtV- or RpV- or RfV-} & {@RcV-} ) or (RmV-))

 Links are identified for the respective adverbs:

  • Comparative adverbs: RcV+
  • Negative Adverbs: RnV1+
  • Imperative adverbs: RmV2+
  • Time adverbs (past): RpV+
  • Adverbs of time (present): RtV+
  • Adverbs of time (future): RfV+

Example : The link of the phrase “ still working ” in Figure 2.9.

Figure 2.9 . Links in the phrase “ still working

In addition, some other types of auxiliary verbs are also able to combine with all verbs:

  • Range adverbs (subtype Rs, e.g. " only "): Adverbs of this type can come after a comparative or a future time adverb.

– Linking formula for verbs:  RsV- &{RcV- or RfV-}

– Linking formula for range adverbs:  RsV+

  • Adverbs of frequency (subtype Rq, e.g. " usually ", " or ", " power "): This type of adverb can go before a range adverb, or after a comparative. Only negative adverbs can go before or after adverbs of frequency. Each position has a different meaning.

Words belonging to this group can be combined with each other within the group, for example " usually or "

 Linking formula for verbs:  {RcV-or RnV-} & @RqV- & {RsV- or RnV-}

Example : The links for the phrase " don't read this book " are shown in Figure 2.10 below:

figure 2.10 . links in the phrase “ don’t read this book often ” affirmative adverbs (subtype 4

Figure 2.10 . Links in the phrase “ don’t read this book often

  • Affirmative adverbs (subtype Ra, e.g. "certain"): Unlike negative adverbs, affirmative adverbs precede a time adverb if both modify the same verb.

Linking formula for verbs:  {RaV-}&{RtV- or RpV- or RfV-}

Linking formula for adverbs:  RaV+

  • Link with the auxiliary element after the verb
