2.5.1.Psychological verbs

This section discusses the so-called psychological or psych-verbs. These verbs denote a mental state/process and select at least an experiencer argument, that is, an argument that refers to an individual who is in the mental state described by the verb. Psych-verbs can be found in most verb classes distinguished in Section 2.1, but there is another set of psych-verbs, sometimes referred to as nom-acc verbs, that constitutes a verb type that we have not seen so far.
