520    This study deals with the so-called Light Verb 
       Construction in Japanese, which consists of the verb 
       "suru" 'do' and an accusative ("o") marked verbal noun 
       (VN). There have been unresolved debates on the role of 
       "suru": whether "suru" in "VN-o suru" functions as a light
       or heavy verb. The previous studies attempt to 
       disambiguate "VN-o suru" formations by relying solely on 
       examining whether "suru" can be thematically light or not.
       This study argues that the ambiguity does not stem from 
       the 'weight' of "suru" but from its accusative phrase: 
       whether it is headed by a thematic (complex event) VN or 
       non-thematic (simple event) VN. Using a principles and 
       parameters approach and employing ideas from conceptual 
       semantics and theories of aspect, this study demonstrates 
       that the characterization of "VN-o suru" formations arises
       not from the dichotic behavior of "suru" but from the 
       dichotic behavior of the accusative phrase
