Abstract

Agent is the semantic role assigned to the intentional instigator of a state of affairs who controls its accomplishment. Prototypically, agents are human beings as they must be able to act intentionally. Beside intentionality, another feature of agents is control, that is, the capacity of the agent to actually bring a state of affairs to its end (Tsunoda 1985).
