Verbs/Croft/Gärdenfors: Croft (2001) Thesis: The role of verbs is described by Croft as a predication.
GärdenforsVsCroft/GärdenforsVsFrege: the concept of predication is too abstract (it can be traced back to Frege) and does not describe the communicative role of verbs. Moreover, verbs are not adequately characterized by predication, since adjectives also predicate._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
