I was wondering whether anyone was aware of (i) any language in which the
causer of a causative psych verb like 'frighten' or 'amuse' (or
'annoy'/'irritate') is coded differently from the A(gent) argument of a
typical monotransitive verb like 'destroy' or 'catch' OR (ii) any language
in which the causee of a causative psych verb is coded differently from the
P(atient) argument of a typical monotransitive verb.
Any information or pointer would be greatly appreciated.
