Yes, nouns and adjectives mostly, besides verbs. I think you are better to consider “events”. Almost all verbs, but quite a few nouns and adjectives do denote
events. However, those nouns and adjectives are typically based on the verbs. Destroy: destruction : destroyed. They all typically map the same natural language arguments into the verb-based predicates and then to the event denotation.

Does "etc" include nouns?
What's the ratio between verbs/commands vs nouns? Many more nouns than verbs I believe.
Who/what/how controls the nouns?
