Abstract

D. Bouchard A single abstract representation of the meaning of each of the two polysemous verbs aller and venir can cover all of their uses. They are not movement verbs from which the other uses are derived since movement is a notion derived from referential properties of the arguments, hence from factors outside of grammar. The abstract semantic representations interact with the vast amount of knowledge shared by speakers, knowledge which should not be present in semantic representations since it is redundant and clutters the grammar.
