This chapter studies the argument structure and the semantic conflation processes which are implicated in the formation of deadjectival verbs. After revising the different kinds of semantic incorporation shown by Spanish deadjectival verbs, it follows that all of them reflect the same type of conflation; i.e. attributive conflation. In spite of their diversity - specifically those cases which show blurred limits between patterns, and those in which it is possible to isolate different patterns depending on the meaning and context -, it can be said that all of them attribute a property, quality or state to a base. In fact, the difference between them lies in the peculiarities of the base in question and, thus, in the way in which the process is developed. Keywords: deadjectival verbs; argument structure; attributive relationship; conflation
