This book contributes to an area of study that is of interest to
linguists of all backgrounds. Typological in nature this volume
presents data analysis from the major language families of Africa as
well as Sino-Tibetan, Austronesian, Japanese, Indo-European, Siouan
and Penutian. The 16 contributors to the volume share a commitment to
examining the language phenomena pertaining to the volume's theme with
a fresh eye. While most of the papers make reference to existing
theoretical frameworks, each also makes a novel and sometimes
surprising contribution to the body of knowledge and theory concerning
motional, directional and locational predicates, complements,
morphology, adpositions and other phenomena. This collection of
articles suitably complements courses on comparative and diachronic
linguistics, semantics, syntax, typology, or field methods.
