Abstract:

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.
