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.
