1) agent (with subclasses:experiencer and cause), 2) patient or
undergoer, 3) beneficiary or location.>

Dear Iver, Kimmo, and others,

What book could you recommend that would further explain the
terminology and approach you mention above? I always appreciate
your contributions from linguistics--thanks for your work!
