Nominalisierte Infinitive gelten als bona-fide-Ereignisnomina, die im Gegensatz zu Resultatsnomina die Argumentstruktur der Basisverben nahezu uneingeschränkt erben. Die hier präsentierte empirische Studie entlarvt diese Annahme jedoch als Vorurteil: Grammatikalitätsurteile von one hundred eighty Testpersonen zeigen, daß zum Teil bisher unerkannte Restriktionen die lexikalischen und syntaktischen Eigenschaften von nominalisierten Infinitiven determinieren. Die Interaktion der Restriktionen wird in einem Wettbewerbsmodell simuliert, das den empirisch ermittelten Grammatikalitätsurteilen Rechnung trägt.
