Externally and Internally Caused Change of State Verbs.
McKoon, Gail; MacFarland, Talke
Language, v76 n4 p833-58 Dec 2000
The lexical semantic structures of change-of-state verbs are explored by linguistic theory, corpus analysis, and psycholinguistic experimentation. Data support the idea that these verbs can be divided into two classes, those for which change of state is internally caused and those for which it is externally caused. (Author/VWL)
