The study questions the semantic difference postulated by research between
the various constructional types of psychverb. The difference which is
assumed in causal structure is refuted using logico-philosophical and
linguistic arguments together with findings from psychological and
neurological research into emotion. It is shown that in their causal
semantics psychverbs differ characteristically from action verbs.
Psychverbs display a bi-directional causal relation, which occasions a
variety of intralingual and supralingual constructions. Based on
cognitive-semantic considerations of the supralingually widespread polysemy
of psychverbs and a functionalist syntactic model, the study demonstrates
by what other mechanisms, if not by differences in the role and causal
structure, the syntactic realisation of psychverb arguments is determined.
The basis is an empirical study of psychverb constructions in five
genetically and typologically different European languages: German,
Estonian, Turkish, Laz and Basque.
