Chapter 2 provided a classification of verbs based on the verb frames they occur in, that is, based on the number and the types of complements they take. This chapter discusses the fact that some verbs may occur in more than one verb frame, a phenomenon that we will refer to as verb frame alternation. Section 3.1 will begin with a brief characterization of the main types, which will be discussed in more detail in Sections 3.2 and 3.3. Section 3.4 concludes with the discussion of some cases which have been described as involving verb frame alternations, but which do not seem to fit in the restricted definition of the notion given above.
