In these two respects, then, UTAH has gained considerable force in the formulation in (38). It is now basically identical with UAH as stated in (34). q. 19 19 Borer (1991) argues against UTAH, presenting an argument to the effect that, while morphological inchoatives like widen in The canal widened can be both pre-syntactically and syntactically derived, morphological causatives like widen in The flood widened the canal can only be pre-syntactically derived. In the latter, then, the adjectival base of the verb, wide, does not project and hence does not assign its 0-role in the same structural position as in constructions in which it does project syntactically.

It seems more like an adverbial modifier. Why there should be a difference between motional and non-motional verbs in this respect is not immediately obvious. Eschewing a discussion of this question,31 let me finish this section by briefly skipping ahead to two later sections of this study, in which further considerations are presented which suggest that aspectual particles can head complement SCs. One such consideration is the fact that the presence of a particle, regardless of whether it is an argument structure changing or aspectual one, facilitates extraposition of predicative PPs in Dutch (cf.

Den Dikken 1987). Hence the maximal constituent that can have undergone PP-over-V in these examples is the PPpredicate of SC. Since, however, the postposition is still physically part of the extraposed phrase in the b-examples in (50) and (51), hence has not moved out of the predicate of the resultative SC, these examples are hard to reconcile with an account of postpositional phrases in terms of P-movement (which would of necessity remove P from the moved PP). Movement of P's NP-complement seems equally incompatible with the facts in (50) and (51), for similar reasons.
