I am a retired wanna be writer, and have been exploring Linguistics as a foundation to my work.

Here are my questions:

1)Where can I find a complete list/definitions of SEMANTIC ROLES?

2)Why can't I find any semantic roles for VERBS? Action? State? The verb IS?

3) Are there SEMANTIC ROLES for OBJECTS, and ABSTRACT NOUNS, such as the concept of TRUTH?

4) SEMANTIC ROLES corresponding to WORD CLASSES?

5) Can anyone refer me to a book or document that answers all of these questions and more?

I thank this wonderful community ahead of time, Linger67
