Many mainstream theories assume a bifurcation in the kinds of entailments contributed by roots and templates, in particular that lexical entailments of change of an individual in change-of-state verbs are only introduced by templates, not roots. We argue against such theories by comparing Levin's (1993) non-deadjectival vs. deadjectival change-of-state verb roots (e.g. crack vs. red roots). A broad-scale typological study reveals that red-type roots tend to have simple (e.g. non-deverbal) stative forms, but crack-type roots do not. Semantic studies of Kakataibo and English show that terms built on crack-type roots always entail change, while terms based on red-type roots may not. We thus suggest that crack-type roots entail change-of-state, contra Bifurcation.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:contributor>Kauhanen, Henri</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kauhanen, Henri</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-09-04T08:28:19Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Koontz-Garboden, Andrew</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Beavers, John</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Koontz-Garboden, Andrew</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Everdell, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Jerro, Kyle</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Two types of states : A cross-linguistic study of change-of-state verb roots</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
