Christian, I goofed on the negative positive of 1a and 1b. Good observation! Concerning your first observation: action-result, action-purpose, sometimes action seems to be the higher point. I agree that in this context it seems the action receives the emphasis.
Christian Giesbrecht
Interesting that you set the main-point to the "action" and not the default "purpose" on some relationships. Makes perfect sense based on the context.
Also, 1a is the negative and 1b the positive. The "not" is usually the negative. Interesting that you see 1b to be the positive of the statement.
