The monograph is a contribution to the study of the interactions between semantics, pragmatics, and syntax. Based on British National Corpus and Corpus of Contemporary American English, the study offers an analysis of English causative constructions with intransitive verbs of motion (secondary agent constructions), which have been dealt with so far only partially. The monograph is an interdisciplinary work, bringing new insights into cognitive linguistics (especially in the analysis of a causation of motion) and building on insights from psycholinguistics and philosophy of language. The monograph is designed for linguists and students of linguistics.
