ABSTRACT: Exploring Cognate Object Constructions in Japanese. The aim of this paper is to explore Cognate Object Constructions in Japanese. To do so, we will rely on the definitions that have been proposed in the literature to account for this phenomenon, as well as on the constraints which apply to such constructions. We will see that Japanese does make use of COCs, although the status of such constructions available in this language is not always agreed upon by the authors who have investigated verbs and their cognate objects. This paper is also concerned with investigating Hyponymic Object Constructions as well as Cognate Object Constructions built on unaccusative verbs. After examining the data, we conclude that although the former are accepted in Japanese, the latter constitute violations.

Key words: verb, cognate object, Japanese, unergative, unaccusative
