This may be realized by grammatical participant roles, by transitivity structures in which activated social actors are coded as actor in material processes, behaver
in behavioral processes, senser in mental processes, sayer in verbal processes, or assigner in relational processes (Halliday, 1985).
But the behaviour is not guided by the rule unless the behaver
knows the rule and can state it.
According to Kantor, the starting point for investigation of psychological events is the behavior segment that is always a bipolar event with a behaver
's response at one end and a stimulus object at the other pole.
In each Polling station, a Polling Assistant should be appointed only for the election-day who will observe the execution of election and closely observe the attitude and behaver
of political parties, polling agents, elections and administrative staff.
The behavioral process depicts behavior and the sole participant is the behaver
. The mental one depicts perception, affection, cognition or a similar process, its elements being the senser and the phenomenon.

The predominance of MATERIAL, BEHAVIOURAL, and MENTAL processes in the ing supplementive clauses in the corpus seems to confirm the research hypothesis that most implied subjects are presented as active semantic participants, particularly as ACTOR, BEHAVER
, and SENSER, in the events in the fictional world, a fact which further supports the research hypothesis that this type of subordinate clauses may be connected to character foregrounding.
Skinner wrote that "behavior generally stimulates the behaver
" (1957, p.
Certainly, all behavior is rational and logical from the perspective of the behaver
. Effective interaction with persons from different cultural traditions and behavioral models, therefore, requires that one make isomorphic attributions of the situation.
This distinction illuminates the role that learning plays in allowing the behaver
the flexibility to take advantage of having beliefs and desires rather than being able only to behave in a particular manner in a particular situation.
