This paper focusses on mental state ad- jectives and offers a unified analysis in the theory of Generative Lexicon (Puste- jovsky, 1991, 1995). We show that, in- stead of enumerating the various syntac- tic constructions they enter into, with the different senses which arise, it is pos- sible to give them a rich typed semantic representation which will explain both their semantic and syntactic polymor- phism.
