Abstract

The verbs saber and conocer and their lexical combinations generate many problems in Spanish as a second language. The Generative Lexicon explains which combinations are wrong and which one are right and consequently can be a great help when it comes to explain the combinations with these verbs. The difference between both verbs lies in the selection of different types of arguments. Conocer selects objects and/or their own and distinctive characteristics. Saber, however, selects specific information of/about objects, entities, events and words that denote agentive activity.
