Abstract

In this paper, we examine <i>failed attempt and partial success interpretations</i> of <i>accomplishment verbs</i> cross-linguistically. We observe that accomplishments differ systematically as to which of these readings they can produce. Relying on Rothstein&#8217;s (2004) theory of accomplishments, we propose that this diversity can be accounted for through <i>properties of the relation between subevents</i> in the accomplishment event structure.
