Linguistic LingField(s):   Syntax

Summary:   In the sum I sent regarding metaphor and non-literal uses of motion verbs in child language, there was an error in the following reference:
--Matlock, T. (in press). The conceptual motivation of fictive motion. In G. Radden and R. Dirven (Eds.), Motivation in grammar. Amsterdam: John H. Benjamins.
The correct reference is as follows:
--Matlock, T. (in press). The conceptual motivation of fictive motion. In G?nter Radden and Klaus-Uwe Panther, Studies in Linguistic Motivation [Cognitive Linguistics Research]. New York and Berlin: Mouton de Gruyter.
I wish to thank Klaus-Uwe Panther and Linda Thornburg for the correction (as it is guessed, the contributors might have not been updated with all the new info).
On the occasion of this correction, I add a list of references sent by Katalin Fenyvesi after I posted the summary. They do not directly address my query, however they may be useful. Here, the entire list is copied, although some books/papers may be very familiar to researchers concerned themselves with motion verbs.
