I´ve got another question from my diploma research.
My original English sentence was
This room seats 25 people.
This room was labeled as locative.
When I give you another example, the sentence
Die Kiste enthält viele Bücher
where die Kiste is labeled with the semantic role locative (example from Deutsche Grammatik, Helbig/Buscha, 2001), do you think dieser Raum in the sentence
Dieser Raum bietet Sitzplätze für 25 Leute
is locative or rather agent?
I would definitely put agent in the same sentence with have:
Dieser Raum hat Sitzplätze für 25 Leute.
And in the last possibility with the verb fassen:
Dieser Raum fasst 25 Leute.
I would probably put locative semantic role.
May you please express your opinion?
