CHSA: Sortal Change: State – Abstract State

Definition: The assertion (s1 CHSA s2 ) connects a state s1 with an abstract conceptual object s2 ; the meanings of these states are systematically interrelated and partially overlapping, although both concepts are designated differently in the surface structure.
Specifically, s1 is typically described by a stat verb in the surface structure, and s2 by a corresponding abstract noun.
