          Abstract

          The chapter contains an overview of V–V complexes in Turkic languages and three case studies of the interaction of V–V complexes with lexical verbs based on field data of Karachay-Balkar, Anatri Chuvash, and Tubalar Altai. The chapter shows that the meaning of a modifier is not uniform but interacts with the meaning of the lexical verbs. Modifiers have different interpretations and/or lexical restrictions that in most cases may be predicted from the semantic features of the lexical verb. If a modifier changes the actional structure of the lexical verb, its specific meaning may be predicted from the actional class of the verb. If a modifier changes the argument structure of the lexical verbs or has a modal meaning, the most relevant features are the volitivity and agentivity of the lexical verb.
