Phrase Heads & Licence Complements - Reference Book

In the book "Oxford Modern English Grammar",  5.1.2 - Complements in Phrases it states: "He wasn't particularly fond of Bax"

"The Head of this AdjP is the adjective fond which licences the PP..."

Essentially I'm trying to determine what complements are licensed by a phrase head for other words.

Many thanks,

Philip
