Abstract

This paper has as its purpose to present a diachronic analysis of the pseudo-copulative verbs verse and sentirse carried out from the theoretical postulates of cognitive semantics and the grammaticalization theory. It will be proved that these two pseudo-copulas in Spanish have been formed within a historical process determined by the conceptual properties of the transitive verbs ver [see] and sentir [feel], additionally highlighting the main functional differences between verse and sentirse and their specific semantic nuances.
