Description

This book focuses on the main constructions with infinitives in sports newspaper articles in three different languages.

To achieve this, three corpora of sports newspaper articles are contrasted, one corpus in English, one in Spanish and another one in French.

Each corpus is constituted by fifty sports newspaper articles.

These infinitive constructions are characterized from a syntactic-textual approach.

The main roles identified in the corpora are: a) infinitive phrases in a noun role, b) infinitive phrases in a verb role: verbal periphrases, c) infinitive clauses with a junction purpose, d) independent constructions, e) lexicalized and grammaticalized infinitives.

Furthermore, the most relevant similarities and differences in the infinitive constructions in each corpus are determined.
