Dear all,

is there any cross-linguistic work on the semantics and syntax of what can
be called external and internal causality exemplified in the following
sentences respectively?

It is cold because it is winter.

John applied for this master's program because he was afraid of not to be
admitted anywhere else.

Many thanks in advance!
Natalia
