Abstract

Chapter 2 examined basic properties of the transitive into -ing pattern from the perspective of the past 100 years, on the basis of four relatively small corpora. This chapter draws on much larger corpora of current English than Chapter 2 did in order further to probe the productivity of the pattern in current English.
