Query Details


Query Subject:   Levin/Vendler verb cross-classification
Author:   Brian Murphy
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   DOES ANYONE KNOW OF WORK THAT TAKES BETH LEVIN'S (1991) SEMANTIC VERB CLASSES AND FURTHER CLASSIFIES THEM BY VENDLER'S ASPECTUAL TYPES? VARIATIONS ON VENDLER SUCH AS CARLOTTA SMITH(1991) OR MARC MOENS AND MARK STEEDMAN (1988) WOULD BE FINE TOO. ULTIMATELY I'M INTERESTED IN WHAT VERBS (OR WHICH OF THEIR SENSES) ALLOW PASSIVISATION AND WHY.

THANKS, BRIAN
