This chapter returns to three paradigms from Italian and Hebrewin, and to the licensing of both E and in unaccusatives — that is, in intransitive quantity structures — showing that locatives play an important role, with covert locatives potentially assigning range to both E and in the paradigms, but not in all quantity intransitives. The resulting discussion sheds light on the accomplishment/achievement distinction, showing the latter to be a non-uniform event type, and in general subsumable under quantity structures.

Keywords:   event argument, licensing, quantity structures, locatives, intransitives
