She demonstrates that Greek phrasal adjectival participles may include an implicit external argument when they denote resultant states (see von Stechow 2001 for relevant semantic discussion) while the external argument is absent from target state participles. German participles never include an implicit agent, whether they introduce target or resultant states. Arosio analyzes the temporal meanings associated with the Italian verbal forms with particular attention to "perfect" constructions and their interaction with durative adverbials.
