Please take a look at Sally Rice's superb 1987 UCSD dissertation:
Participants and Nonparticipants: Toward a Cognitive Model of Transitivity.
It goes well beyond Hopper and Thompson's fine earlier work.
She also has a paper-- Transitivity and the Lexicon -- in the CRL Newsletter
2.2, 1987, available online I think from the Center for Research on
Language at UCSD.
Hope you enjoy it.
