First, I analyze the lexical, grammatical, and constructional devices that the speakers of Nepali use to describe Motion events and their semantic elements such as Path, Manner, Figure, and Ground emphasizing the expression of Path and its different portions, and the point of view (deixis). Secondly, I investigate the lexicalization patterns (cf. Talmy, 1985, 2000) in this domain of expression. Finally, I examine how language-specific patterns influence the types of spatial information that the speakers of Nepali typically encode in discourse when describing Motion events.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-08-08T07:02:33Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
