Ronan, Major Alfonso, Delexical.

The modest opinions of Ronan Delaney gather here. When I feel the need to write up my opinions on something that takes my fancy it ends up on this blog so naturally it’s sporadically updated. It’s all personal opinion so feel free to get in touch if something is inaccurate, unfair, unattributed or worse and I’ll happily consider amending what’s written.

All content is copyright of Ronan Delaney. I’m liberal enough about sharing anything so drop a line if you’re interested.

Finally why “delexical” ? It refers to a situation where certain verbs have little lexical meaning and prepostion and the noun coupled with it carries the meaning instead. Like “give it a try”. You cannot reconstruct the sentence as “give a try to it” and maintain the meaning. The direct object phrase represents the action. I needed a domain name and it was free…
