English and Spanish each have one main verb for "to like".
In English "to like", the grammatical subject must be the one doing the appreciating:
I like her.
But with Spanish "gustar", the person appreciating must be the grammatical object:
Ella me gusta.
Spanish has a few other common verbs which also are opposite the English such as "encantar" vs "to love".
But my questions is simply whether there is a term to describe such verbs which have the subject and object the other way around.
Something like "valence" or "mode" or "directionality". Is there a term for this?
