LINGUIST 232B: Seminar in Lexical Semantics: Agents, External Arguments, and Clause Structure

An investigation into the semantic foundations of clause structure through the lens of agentivity. Review of recent research on the nature of agentivity, with a focus on investigations of non-canonical instances (e.g., non-volitional agents, emitters, natural forces, projectiles). Implications for current syntactic assumptions about the nature of the clause (e.g., severing the external argument, voice P, little v). May be repeated for credit with different content.
