Working paper

TOWARDS A LEXICAL TYPOLOGY OF ‘FLYING’ AND ‘JUMPING’

Плунгян В. А., Rakhilina E. V.
This paper focuses on some lexical properties of two groups of verbs in the languages of the world, without trying to provide their exhaustive typological description. The first group includes the verbs of movement through the air (verbs of ‘flying’); the other includes the verbs that designate temporary separation from a supporting surface (verbs of ‘jumping’).
