On 1 April 2009, I said

  But I must admit that the distinction between action
  and interaction depends on your point of view.

  For example, I consider give to be an action,
  and marry to be an interaction.
  Expressed in mKR (see http://mkrmke.org)

      John Doe do give od a book to Mary Smith done;
      John Doe, Mary Smith ido marry done;
---------
I would like to point out that this is not just my personal
point of view.  The English language uses different words
to describe different points of view.  Here are some
alternate views of this example of give (in mKR).

    Mary Smith do receive od a book from John Doe done;
    John Doe, Mary Smith ido trade od a book, a CD done;
