Alternating smell in Modern Hebrew
Many studies on perception verbs have dealt with the typology and semantic properties of their clausal complements. Other studies have dealt with the lexical relatedness of different perception verbs with a common sensory modality. Bridging these two views, this work focuses on the Modern Hebrew verb le-hariax ‘to smell’, which alternates in the case-marking of the experiencer and in the type of complement clause, and on the semantic properties which accompany the alternation. The lexical relatedness between words with a common sensory base is expressed through morpho-syntactic means, shared with verbs of other sensory modalities, and these shed light on the linguistic manifestation of the sensory hierarchy and on the contribution of voice alternation within the field of perception.
