Qs: Semantic Types of the (English) Predicative Verbs

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 1: Semantic Types of the (English) Predicative Verbs
Date: 20-Oct-2006
From: Mihai Daniel Frumuselu <mihai.frumuselugmail.com>
Subject: Semantic Types of the (English) Predicative Verbs


I am currently looking for an account on the semantic types of predicative
verbs. Ray Jackendoff (‘Semantic structures’) and other scholars mention
CAUSATIVES, INCHOATIVES, INGRESSIVES, RESULTATIVES… Keith Allan (‘Natural
language semantics’) mentions FACTIVES (know, realise...), IMPLICATIVES
(forget, happen to...), ASPECTUALS (begin, continue...), ITERATIVES
(return, repeat...).

Do you know other books or articles that make a systematic and
comprehensive account on the semantics of verbal predications? I am
particularly interested in English, but examples from other languages are
also welcome.

Thank you and best regards,
Mihai Frumuselu
