Abstract

The aim of this paper is to outline a comparative study of the argument structure of verbs issued from latin esse and stare in the main Romance languages (¥x.\être\ It.: essere/stare; Pt. and Sp. : ser/estar).The complexity of the lexical and syntactic phenomena involved indicates that a systematic determination of the equivalence classes of those verbs as well as the study of the verbs that can operate on them has to be achieved in order to clarify linguistic facts, and to organize the data of the various languages on a formal basis.
