Abstract:

This book explores the nature of stative verbs, their eventuality
structure, and the patterns of argument realization. The study shows that
there is no single class of stative verbs. Rather, several distinct groups
of verbs are found: Verbs that undergo a systematic stative/eventive
ambiguity; verbs that allow for a stative reading only; and verbs that seem
to have an intermediate status (verbs of position and verbs of internal
causation). The study concludes that there is a discrete boundary between
stative and eventive verbs, excluding any intermediate status. Stativity
arises because the aspectual operators DO and BECOME are absent in the
lexical-semantic structure. Eventivity arises if one of these is present. A
minimalist view on argument realization and event structure completes the
book: Theta features on the arguments are checked against the aspectual
heads within the verb phrase.
