Description

Title:A cross-linguistic survey of associated motion and directionals (Data Handout)
Author(s):Ross, Daniel
Subject(s):Linguistics

Associated motion
Directionals
Abstract:This data handout represents the results of a worldwide survey of Associated Motion (AM) and Directionals (DIR), based on a sample of 325 languages following the methodology of the World Atlas of Language Structures. DIR morphemes describe an inherent path in an existing motion event, and AM morphemes add a motion sub-event (and usually path) to another predicate. To maintain consistency, the scope of this survey is only for grammaticalized, morphological AM and DIR systems. Each language in the sample was coded for several features including: the presence of morphological AM and/or DIR and number of contrastive morphemes; certain semantic distinctions such as the direction (itive, ventive, up, down, etc.); whether there is any overlap in function between AM and DIR morphemes; whether AM is prior, concurrent or subsequent; and interactions with other grammatical categories. This Data Handout accompanies the December 2017 talk at the international workshop on Associated Motion at the 12th Conference of the Association for Linguistic Typology (ALT 12), Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. The full abstract for the talk is included at the end of this handout.
