Applying Vendler's Test to a Class of Verbs in Turkish
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am a graduate student at Syracuse University, and for my class in
Semantics, my research project is to study and find out a test that
shows the distinction between the stative vs. dynamic verbs in Turkish.
So far I have tried and applied Vendler's/Dowty's tests, but they did not
work for Turkish: stative verbs can occur in progressive, they can also
occur as complements of force and persuasion, and also they can
occur as imperatives in Turkish.
If anyone can suggest any other tests that can be used for this type of
verb class, it would be very helpful.
