Derivation in a word-based morphology: on the origin of Old English verbs of perception, cognition and emotion
Keywords:Derivation in a word-based morphology, on the origin of Old English verbs of perception, cognition and emotion
AbstractIn this paper I describe the process of grammaticalization of Old English causative verbs through the analysis of some of the different strategies for the expression of causation in three different lexical domains: PHYSICAL PERCEPTION, COGNITION and EMOTION. The etymological analysis of these verbs indicates that, in the case of the three lexical domains under scrutiny, causation was lexicalized and conceptualized as forced movement or change of an external (as in the case of verbs of FEELING; e.g. OE hieran 'to hear') or internal (i.e. verbs of COGNITION and some EMOTION verbs; e.g. OE gemynan 'to remember' and OE hiertan 'to encourage') part of the body.
