Le statut de verbe dit ergatif : étude contrastive anglais-français

Abstract : The lexical distribution of ergative verbs, i.e. verbs appearing in transitive and intransitive pairs in which there is referential identity between the subject of intransitive sentence and object of transitive sentence is organized according to such criteria as the notional properties of the relator and goal of the predicative relation, modal aspectual features, and affectedness of the object. The opposition between intransitive forms and forms involving the se clitic is explained by the primitive separative value of se. other oppositions between synthetic and analytic transitive forms are explained by agentive control over the process, and so is explained the opposition between metaphorical and literal meaning associated with those forms.
