Motion Encoding in Language and Space, Hardback Book


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 resolutionor granularity play a role in the encoding of motion in language.
