Attitude Problems

Oxford University Press

The proposal that verbs of creation in progressive aspect be given the same semantic treatment as intensional transitives generally, is found in (Bennett 1977) and is worked out in a Montagovian way in (Zucchi 1999); also, Richard (2001) classifies creation verbs as intensional transitives ‘in the progressive’. Since creation verbs are action verbs, Davidsonian event semantics is appropriate for them. This chapter discusses Parsons' theory, characterizing processes of creation, verbs of depiction, depiction verbs and the definiteness effect, and the pure inventory effect.

Keywords:   intensional transitive verbs, verbs, Parsons' theory, depiction verbs, creation verbs
