On the Distinction between Abstract States, Concrete States, and Tropes

In Claire Beyssade, Mari Alda & Del Prete Fabio (eds.), Genericity. Oxford University Press. pp. 292-311 (2013)
Abstract
This paper defends a distinction between ‘abstract states’ and ‘concrete states’, following Maienborn (2005, 2007) in her account of the peculiar semantic behavior of stative verbs. The paper proposes an ontological account of the notion of an abstract state and discusses how it relates to the notion of a trope or particularized property, which has so far been neglected in the semantic literature on stative verbs.
