Verb Particle Constructions: A  Bibliography

This bibliography was originally composed for the DFG-research project Particle Verb Formation in German and English , but has grown since the project finished in 2003.
If you work on particle verbs (phrasal verbs, separable complex verbs ...), please help me maintain this bibliography by pointing out missing references to me (contact).
