Arie Verhagen

Verhagen project1 Naive-Model-of-CausalityCausation is a basic dimension of language and cognition. I have been investigating this topic since 1991, both at the level of verbs and clauses (causative constructions) and on the level of discourse (causal connectives). A large part of the work is done in collaboration with colleagues, nationally and internationally.
