– common paths of grammaticalization of motion verbs in Romance (motion > tense, aspect markers)
– less common paths of grammaticalization of motion verbs in Romance (motion > passive auxiliaries)
– motion verbs used as copulas – a Pan-Romance path; possible explanations
– mechanisms of syntactic change explaining these phenomena
– the degree to which the motion (deictic) meaning is preserved in the novel (grammaticalized) structures
– the relevance of the Romance motion verbs data for the theory of grammaticalization (intermediate steps, switch context(s))
– the relevance of dialectal data for the theory of grammaticalization
