Tronci, L (2007). Contextes de “peur”. Sur l’opérateur à lien. In: Dister, A; Constant, M. Actes du XXVI Colloque International sur le Lexique et la Grammaire, Bonifacio. Bonifacio: Colloque Lexique et Grammaire, 167-174.



The so-called psychological predicates have been widely studied in different approaches, as well as in
the framework of Lexicon-Grammar (cf. Ruwet 1972; Belletti et Rizzi 1988; Farrell 1989; Cresti
1990; Gross 1995). I present in this paper a preliminary description of syntactic structures where
psychological predicates occur in Sanskrit. The comparison with Italian structures shows interesting
relationships between forms and functions. In Sanskrit structures with bhı‚-/bhíyas- ‘fear’ the
experiencer is morphologically marked by the locative case, not only in elementary sentence
structures, but also in structures with causative operators, where transformational processes are to be
found. Independently from the differences in form, the comparison with Italian structures sheds light
on some interesting similarities, as far as the relationship between the morphosyntactic properties of
V-operators and their functions is concerned.
