Abstract: This thesis studies the syntactic and semantic properties of four different constructions, namely, a serial verb construction (SVC), an auxiliary verb construction (AVC), a light verb construction (LVC), and a morphological causative construction (MC) in Korean. I argue that each of these constructions can be analysed as a complex predicate construction (CPC) made up of more than one predicative element in a single syntactic clause. By analysing the predicates in the CPCs, vis-a-vis the semantic classification or "aspectual" classes (Vendler 1967), I will show how the composed complex events expressed by the CPCs are similar to the event structure of a single predicate where an achievement or accomplishment event is expressed. I will also show how the composed events interact with functional structure and constituent structure within the framework of Lexical Functional Grammar (Besnan 1982, 2001).
