Contrastive research involving Spanish, English, French and Dutch: descriptive, computational and theoretical aspects.

Addition of the Spanish component to the current Contragram research on verb structures in English, French and Dutch. More specifically: testing of a hypothesis regarding the difference between 'satellite framing' and 'verb framing' languages. Joint research is also envisaged on the limits of corpus-driven research, both imposed by the available software and by the nature of certain research questions.
