This collection explores change of state expressions across different languages from morphosyntactic, semantic, and pragmatic perspectives, taking into account several theoretical and experimental approaches. Both morphosyntactically simple as well as complex expressions (e.g. resultative constructions) are investigated with respect to their event and argument structure, compositionality, aspect, telicity, scalarity, culminativity, and implicatures.
