A frequently used language construct designates an entity as being the agency who brought about a certain state of the world, without explicitly describing the actions it used to do so.

Narratives involving humans use this construct frequently. At theĀ linguisticĀ level, such constructs usually use the same very general verb (gets, puts, makes and so on) although in some cases, we have more specific verbs which depend on the achieved state (e.g. kills, destroys, repairs and so on).

Achilles kills Hector.

In Xapi, this representation is achieved by a coincidence group in which the subject agent is the subject of a verb |achieves|.

"Achilles" / achieves.
"Hector" / thus changes / dead.
