Abstract:
There are three types of processes expressed by the verb and the roles of a clause in Dení: action processes, mental processes, and relational processes. Action processes fall into the two main categories of non-motion and motion. Mental processes include the locutionary process, the cognition process, the perception process and the desiderative process. Relational processes include attributive relations, identification relations, ambient relations, possession relations, and presentation relations. Each type of process has nuclear (inherent) and peripheral (non-obligatory) roles.
