Moreover, intravedere has more abstract fillers than scorgere in Table╯2; this leads us to believe that its figurative instances are more common, and (possibly) that its figurative sense is more strongly lexicalized. We can also note some differences among the concrete filler nouns for the three verbs. g. segnale [signal] and sintomo [symptom]). : almost the polar opposite of the vague and indefinite entities described above.

In sentence (40), for example, both il tir and fermo su una piazzola di sosta are labeled as the Phenomenon, but the former is then labeled as a direct object (GF) and as an NP (PT), while the latter is tagged as a predicative complement (GF) and as an AP (PT). Among the peripheral FEs, the most important for verbs of visual perception (both in English and Italian) are Ground, Place, and Direction. In Perception_ active and Perception_experience, the Ground is the perceptual background against which the Phenomenon is experienced by the Perceiver.

On the other hand, sbirciare occurs with the Direction alone in almost 65% of the annotated sentences.
