More on this event

This lecture considered the main approaches to the problems of lexical and semantic typology. It presented the results and on-going projects of the Moscow Lexical Typology group (MLexT). The lines of research covered included: typology of aquamotion, rotation verbs, pain predicates, sound metaphors, physical qualities (such as sharp-blunt, wet, full-empty, rough-even), and falling verbs. Special emphasis was placed to the semantics and lexical coding of falling as well as the practical concerns of lexical typological research.
