This study presents the Semantic Roles of Action verbs based on the Case Study theory. The focus of this study is the analysis of the relationship between Action Verb and the noun accompanying it in a sentence. There are three essential purposes of this study. The first one is the identification of the Semantic Structures of the English Action Verbs to be analyzed. The second point is to find out the Case Frame of the English Action Verbs. There are five cases that are assigned by a verb to the noun: agent, experience, benefactive, object and locative. And the last one is the analysis of the Semantic Roles of the English Action Verbs. The fundamental theory used in this study is Case Grammar theory proposed by Cook (1979). The data was collected through the library research by reading the novels mentioned above. The collected data then is analyzed based on Case Grammar theory. The analyzed data is presented both formally and informally, with presentation of tables and statistical feature also descriptively. The analysis leads us to some conclusion. First, the Semantic Structures of the English Action Verbs showed by their case frame. Second, Action Verbs have case frame configurations as basic action verbs, action experiential verbs, action benefactive verbs, and action locative verbs. Third, Action Verbs have semantic roles as agent, experience, benefactive, object and locative. Deep structure analysis leads to the discovery of covert case roles. All of the three types of covert case role were found in available data.
