Assunto:  ergative verbs (?) - to ETA...gee!!!
 
Mensagem:  What do you mean?? 

Are you hinting that I´ve pasted this piece of info here to show off? Who has become so  smart? People on the net, wikipedia readers, ME???

I was browsing thru the net and came across sth. called "ergative verbs", which, surprisingly I had never ever heard of. I first came here to get some further info on the subject and found nothing at all. As you can notice, I did include the source from which I copied it, so by no means I tried to impress anyone whatsoever. It was a plain straight question. Period.

I´ll check the sources you´ve suggested anyway, and then try to get what they mean... 

Sorry, but your message DOES sound arrogant (I hope I have misunderstood you "eta")

All the best (indeed)

If someone else can give me a help on it, I´d appreciate (Dale, PPaulo, Fran, CRS, José Roberto, Breckenfeld, Ricardo.....pleeeeease!!!!)
