Definition of eventive in English:
(Of the subject or object of a sentence) denoting an event.
- We will argue that it is the well-established contrast between stative and eventive predicates that lies at the bottom of these effects.
- Yet, it might be argued, ordinary language allows for the relata to be described in eventive (imperfect nominal), factive (perfect nominal), and other forms.
