Abstract: The aim of this paper is to analyse the behaviour of the light verb give, in English, that appears in the double object constructions and the prepositional dative constructions. We write down the well known classification of deverbal nominals into complex event nominals, simple event nominals and result nominals. We will also bring into discussion the suffixes that appear with these deverbal nominals. We are only interested in the zero-derived nominals which are always result nominals. The scope of the zero-derived suffix is quite important to our research. We will show that there is a preference for the double object construction, at least, in case of the light verb give plus a zero-derived nominal.
Keywords: light verb, deverbal nominal, zero-derived suffix, result nominals, double object constructions, prepositional dative constructions
