CANCADO, Márcia. The lexicon within a thematic role theory. DELTA [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.2, pp.297-321. ISSN 1678-460X.

This paper presents some hypotheses about the lexicon. As those hypotheses are included in a specific thematic role theory, I briefly outline some of the main points of this theory, which can be inserted in the field of lexical semantics (it is based on lexical items and their composition). I conclude with some arguments in favor of the inclusion of this model in a grammatical theory, using for that some empirical evidence from Brazilian Portuguese.

Keywords : Lexical Semantics; Thematic Role Theory; Compositional Analysis; Grammatical Theory.
