dc.description.abstract Este artículo se propone examinar las construcciones de causalidad, centrándose en una clase verbal en particular, a saber, los verbos de cambio de estado específico. El paso más importante consiste en encontrar un marco teórico capaz de dar cuenta del complejo comportamiento sintáctico de estos verbos y de lograr un equilibrio entre las configuraciones de bajo y alto nivel. El presente estudio también demuestra que los constrictores externos formulados por el Modelo Léxico Construccional constituyen herramientas analíticas útiles para la subsunción de esta clase verbal en la construcción intransitiva de causalidad. Los constrictores externos se refieren a mecanismos cognitivos como la metáfora y la metonimia de alto nivel. Estos producen un cambio en la perspectiva de un predicado que le permite subsumirse fácilmente en una construcción dada. This article sets out to examine causal constructions by focusing on a particular verbal class, namely, entity-specific change-of-state verbs. The most important step consisted in finding a theoretical framework capable of accounting for the intricate syntactic behavior of these verbs and of giving equal importance to the contribution of both lower-level and high-level configurations. The present study also shows that the external constraints formulated by the Lexical Constructional Model constitute useful analytical tools for the integration of this verbal class into the intransitive causal construction. The external constraints involve cognitive mechanisms such as high-level metaphor and metonymy, which produce a change in perspective of a lexical predicate and allow it to be easily subsumed into a given construction.
