Assuming that scorgere evokes the Perception_experience frame, the core FEs are the Perceiver Passive, the perceived Phenomenon and the Body Part used to perceive. Based on corpus attestations, we noted that the Perceiver Passive is usually expressed as the subject (12).

A tourist attraction. The LUs we are studying are not quite so specific, but they do add some contextual information to the perceptual experience by specifying the manner in which it occurs, its external conditions, the intentions of the Perceiver, and so on. Avvistare refers to a situation where the Perceiver sees something from afar, usually in a context where he or she was already keeping watch (similarly to English sight). Intravedere and scorgere evoke a situation where perception is hampered by adverse conditions of some kind, giving rise to a “doubtful” experience that is usually partial or very brief.
