Perception verbs revisited

Abstract
This paper will present some very general descriptions of language-specific conceptualization of visual perception in English and Lithuanian, and will focus on some basic structure-dependent types of meaning of the see and seem type perception verbs in English and Lithuanian. For this purpose, the hierarchical structure of the clause and the typology of perception verb complements proposed by Simon C. Dik and Kees Hengeveld 1991, and the concept of entities discussed in the works of John Lyons 1977, 1991 will be followed in the analysis undertaken. A distinction will be drawn between experiential and non-experiential types of perception, with only the latter one being considered to convey information which is loaded with some modal... (More)
This paper will present some very general descriptions of language-specific conceptualization of visual perception in English and Lithuanian, and will focus on some basic structure-dependent types of meaning of the see and seem type perception verbs in English and Lithuanian. For this purpose, the hierarchical structure of the clause and the typology of perception verb complements proposed by Simon C.

A distinction will be drawn between experiential and non-experiential types of perception, with only the latter one being considered to convey information which is loaded with some modal qualifications. I will keep to the definition of the concept of modality developed in the works by Palmer 1986, Chafe & Nichols 1986, Frawley 1992, Nuyts 1992, Bybee et al. 1994, Botne 1997. (Less)
