The Basis for a Crosslinguistic Typology of Motion/Location, Part 2. Working Papers on Language Universals, No. 11.
An analytic sketch of motion/location in more primitive spatio-temporal terms is presented. The earlier account (ED 096 825), showing various languages' most characteristic pattern for deriving a putatively-universal underlying representation of motion and location, is continued. The English pattern is characterized further (amplified by data from the analogous Russian and Yiddish), and the distinct Spanish pattern is presented and contrasted. A typology of languages based on their most characteristic pattern of motion/location derivation concludes the discussion. (Author/PMP)
