Rezumat:The study is part of a ampler project dedicated to the description of the psychological verb class in Romanian, from the cognitive grammar perspective. The analysis follows the way and degree to which the intrinsic semantic content of a psychological predicate influences a relevant adjunctial frame for both the gradual modifiers [in particular the adverb (very, pretty) little versus (very, pretty) much], and for the polarity modifiers [that is, positive versus negative versus neuter]. Our research exceeds the strict frame of a lexicographic analysis, the latter being complemented by the study of the psychological predicate behaviour at the discourse level (referring in particular to the current stage of Romanian language evolution), which implies a more complex analysis, that is, a semantic-pragmatic one. Following this perspective, at least some of the aspects classified as “mistakes” as far as the literary norms are concerned, will be “re-analysed” and “re-considered” within a pragmatic approach. Picking on the same idea, the identification of new tendencies in the contemporary Romanian language will be possible. These tendencies look deeper into the way the current Romanian speaker perceives- through the assertions they utter- the intrinsic content of some of the psychological verbs of the language, and, implicitly, of the chance/non-chance of certain linguistic facts to be accepted as norm and to enter, ultimately, the Romanian language system.
