On some characteristics of a group of emotive verbs
Languages of publication
The paper discusses the usage of a group of intransitive emotive verbs. The notion of a negative impact is expressed in most of the verbs belonging to this group. It will be shown that the predicative verbal adverbial constructions of these verbs must be used instead of the finite forms in sentences expressing existing states of emotions in the present. The subject of the predicative verbal adverbial is in the thematic role of an experiencer in these constructions.
