This study reports on findings from an elicited narrative task in which native speakers of three genetically different languages, German, Polish, and Spanish, were asked to describe motion scenes from an extract of Chaplin’s City Lights. The results show that linguistic typology has an important… read more | Chapter

Lewandowski, Wojciech 2012 19. The locative PP motion construction in Polish: A third lexicalisation pattern?Space and Time in Languages and Cultures: Linguistic diversity, Filipović, Luna and Katarzyna M. Jaszczolt (eds.), pp. 437–458
This chapter explores from a typological and construction grammar perspective the use of locative vs directional PPs as alternative ways of expressing spatial endpoints in Polish. I argue, against Nikitina (2008, 2010), that the locative PP motion construction (LPPMC) represents a verb-framed… read more | Article
