Abstract
Since Vendler (1967), the verbal aspect has been one of the most important
issues in the Lexical Semantics. In particular, the differentiation between activity
verbs and accomplishment ones is the very tough problem for many lexical
semanticists. Motion verbs like push (Eng.) or mil-ta (Kor.) are obvious activities
and creation verbs like build (Eng.) or cis-ta (Kor.) behave as clear
accomplishment, while consumption verbs like eat (Eng.) or mek-ta (Kor.)
express activities or accomplishment. Therefore, this paper aims to suggest the
Event Structure of motion/consumption/creation verbs based on the Generative
Lexicon Theory by Pustejovky (1995, 2000a, 2000b).
As for the argument structure, three kinds of verbs are different from one another
in terms of incrementality, quantization, and lexical closure as follws:
This paper also analyzes the internal event structures of these three type verbs
considering the causation and the event persistent structure with the opposition
structure. Motion verbs do not belong to the causation because their themes are not
affected. They, however, have the transitivity and their event structures are
complex. Consumption verbs also denote complex events and the causation
because their themes are incremental and affected. On the other hand, creation
verbs also express the complex events, but their themes are not affected. So the
complexity of the event is determined by means of the transitivity.
But, the events related to these three types of verbs imply the change and the
more minute examination is required. Thus, I investigate their internal event
structures using the event persistence structure (EPS) and the event overlapping.
Motion verbs belongs to the persistent function, while consumption verbs and
creation verbs mean the gate function. The latter ones are different in terms of the
changing aspect. Consumption verbs means the change related to the polar
property, but creation verbs express the change with the binary property. In
addition, motion verbs have the overlapped complex events, and consumption
verbs express the partially overlapped ones. On the contrary, the event structures of
creation verbs are strictly ordered, and creation verbs are the typical
accomplishment verbs.
