Abstract

book reviews 553 what in other frameworks is referred to as “applicatives.” The different NAF construc- tions are, in effect, different semantic subclasses of transitive verbs, each imposing a characteristic semantic interpretation on its Patient (the required perceptual, not situa- tional, role), expressed as a Nominative noun phrase in these languages.
