Title: Motion Encoding in Language and Space
Edited By: Mila Dimitrova-Vulchanova
Emile van der Zee
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199661213.do
Description:

This book brings together researchers in linguistics, computer science, psychology and cognitive science to investigate how motion is encoded in language. The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers the parameters at play in motion encoding (including directed motion) by presenting new research on Estonian, English, Norwegian, Bulgarian, Italian, German, Russian, Persian, and Tamil. Part II investigates the way in which different levels of spatial resolution or granularity play a role in the encoding of motion in language.
