About this item

The components of motion that natural languages most commonly lexicalize are the encoding of how motion takes place, and the path that the moving object follows, says Linzinka, and it is those two components that she studies here in Polish in contrast to the related Slavic language Russian. She covers theoretical assumptions of cognitive linguistics, about motion, path and manner coded in motion verbs and verbal prefixes, the lexicalization of manner and path in Polish, a comparative study of Polish and Russian translated texts, and elicitation tasks.
