The Unaccusative speculation, first formulated in 1978, claimed that there are sessions of intransitive verbs, the unaccusative (Jill arrived) and the unergative or agentive (Jill sings).

No consensus has been reached. This booklet combines modern techniques to the topic with a number of papers that experience completed an important prestige although officially unpublished.
