This chapter focuses on the causative behavior of sensory emotional denominal verbs. Under this label, as well as the so-called <i>psychological </i>or <i>emotional</i> verbs, some other verbs are also included. These verbs may convey a physical change of state or a psychological change of state, so they may be paraphrased as &#8216;to cause &#43; conflated noun&#8217;, conveying external or internal causation, respectively. The semantic content of the implicated bases seems to strongly influence the final meaning of the resultant denominal verb. Furthermore, as well as the causative component, sensory-emotional denominal causative verbs carry some other meanings, such as location or possession. Keywords: denominal causative verbs; argument structure; conflation; sensory-emotional verbs
