Qs: SEE and CAUSE
Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
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.

SEE and CAUSE
Message 1: SEE and CAUSE
From: Jean-Charles Khalifa <jckricky.univ-poitiers.fr>
Subject: SEE and CAUSE
Still working on the fuzzy boundary between causatives and perception
verbs, I have started looking at the English SEE-construction in examples
She saw him to the door
They saw her home
I'll see you to the airport
See a book through
I was wondering
1) whether there has been any in-depth work at all, in any framework, on
2) whether there were languages exhibiting such meanings with verbs
meaning SEE or any other perception verb.
Thanks in advance, I'll post a summary if need be.
