Data100 Verb forms 20 Coding frames 14 Alternations (100.0% avail.) 170 glossed Examples
Concerning the frequency of a verb's alternation, we decided intuitively whether an alternation occurs 'marginally' or 'regularly'. Some alternations marked as occuring 'marginally' surely have to be rediscussed.
Concerning the Coding Frames we did not pay attention to adjuncts.
Often there can be created alternations of alternations. We did not mark them but in most cases we made a comment.
We did not establish a causative alternation.
