The papers in this volume are part of papers presented at the International Workshop on Verbs and Their Arguments at the University of Vienna in November 2015. The workshop was organized in honor of Prof. Lars Hellan who has either trained the contributors in the analysis of verbs and their arguments, or worked with them on a project in that field.

Some of the chapters deal with tense, aspect, modality and polarity categories of verbs. Others explore verb semantics, argument structure, argument realization, serial verb constructions, predicate-cleft constructions, object agreement and issues related to syntax-semantics interface.
