Recent applications of phylogenetic methods to historical linguistics have been criticized for assuming a tree structure in which ancestral languages differentiate and split up into daughter languages, while language evolution is inherently non-tree-like (François 2014; Blench 2015: 32–33).

Verkerk, Annemarie 2017 The goal-over-source principle in European languages: Preliminary results from a parallel corpus studySpace in Diachrony, Luraghi, Silvia, Tatiana Nikitina and Chiara Zanchi (eds.), pp. 1–40

The data comes from translations of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in the ParaSol parallel corpus. The original English text and all translations display more frequent marking… read more | Chapter
The last four decades have seen huge progress in the description and analysis of cross-linguistic diversity in the encoding of motion (Talmy 1985, 1991, Slobin 1996, 2004). Comparisons between satellite-framed and verb-framed languages suggest that satellite-framed languages typically have a larger… read more | Article
There are many different syntactic constructions that languages can use to encode motion events. In recent decades, great advances have been made in the description and study of these syntactic constructions from languages spoken around the world (Talmy 1985, 1991, Slobin 1996, 2004). However,… read more | Article
