Subject: Deictic Verbs in English
I'm searching for information on deictic verbs in English, specifically
the pairs loan/borrow, bring/take and come/go. Particularly of interest
to me are usages such as:
The neighbor lady often borrows me things.
I'll bring out the trash later.
If anyone has information on this topic I would appreciate a reply.
