Abstract

In this paper I will discuss Kemmer’s (1993) middle map, a semantic map covering semantic concepts like Reflexivity, Reciprocity and the Passive. Her claim is that those middle meanings serve as a bridge between the categories of Two-Participant events and One-Participant events, the semantic counterparts of transitive and intransitive verbs, respectively. However, in this paper it will be argued that there is no such bridging function; there is a direct connection between Two-Participant and One-Participant events.
