dc.description.abstract Deals with the predicate argument structure of the verbs of sending and carrying in the Zulu language within the general framework of the government and binding theory. In the discussion of these verbs, derived and non-derived verbs are scrutinised. This study also deals with the number of arguments each predicate is able to take and how these arguments are termed. The study gives a comprehensive view on the issue of how these one, two and three place predicates assign semantic roles to arguments and their relationship with the internal and external arguments in a sentence. The role of the complements is addressed with both derived and non-derived verbs. Different alternations affecting verbs of sending and carrying are discussed. The attention is focused on whether these structures remain the same or if there are any grammatical changes. It is clear that some verbs yield grammatically correct structures and other yield unacceptable Zulu sentences. en
