Las propiedades de gradabilidad de los adjetivos dentro del SD

Abstract: During the last decades, the studies about gradability properties of adjectives have increased considerably within different linguistic traditions. Kennedy and McNally (2005) classify adjectives as gradable (alto, cansado) and non-gradable (semanal). The first ones express a group of degrees organized in lineal order with respect to a dimension and allow modification of degree (muy cansado); on the contrary, non-gradable ones do not allow that modification (*muy semanal). Within gradable adjectives, Kennedy and McNally distinguish between those with a closed scale (they express a scale with a maximum and/or minimum point- completamente seco) and those with an open scale (they have a scale without maximum and minimum values- *completamente alto). Gradable adjectives have also been classified as relative or absolute depending on the how their standard of comparison is determined. This way, relative adjectives have an interpretation that depends on context whereas absolute ones are not dependent to it. From this, researchers like Kennedy and McNally propose that the telicity properties of gradual attainment deadjectival verbs are established from the properties of the adjectives which define the former ones’ basis. Husband (2012) and Gumiel & Pérez (2012) establish that the properties of the adjectives of individual and state can stem from the adjective’s comparison standard. According to these premises, I study the link between the adjectives’ gradability properties and the names they combine with within the DS. Demonte (1999), and others, observes that those adjectives which- like alto- can be interpreted as predicate of the individual...
