    Re: Ergative verbs

    But ... the list at Category:English ergative verbs - Wiktionary is fairly thorough.

    As a general rule, if there is no link back to a home page, you can often get back by deleting bits from the end of the URL.

    Re: Ergative verbs

    I'm not sure of a source that has the WHOLE LIST; however, here is a good site that offers a thorough explanation of how an ergative verb is determined. Glowing Face Man Hope this helps you out. His site is a bit cluttered, but look at the links to the right and find ergative verb.
