Sound‐class Verbs

(p.239) 7 SOUND‐class Verbs
The Event Structure of Perception Verbs

Nikolas Gisborne (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter is taken up with three separate concerns: what are the relationships between sound‐class verbs and the other classes of perception verbs; are these verbs evidential, and how is the evidentiality to be analysed; and how should we understand the phenomenon of what has come to be known as copy raising? It is argued that the network structure surrounding these verbs' senses includes part of the semantic structure of their sound‐class counterparts, and this provides a basis for the understanding of evidentiality; an understanding of evidentiality and the semantics of as if clauses also underscores the treatment of copy raising.

Keywords:   evidentiality, epistemic modality, semantic relatedness, copy raising, attributary construction
