Semantics of falling: a cross-linguistic approach

The objective of the present paper is to present a cross-linguistic description of falling predicates developed by the Moscow Lexical Typology Group. The current study employs a methodology proposed by  (MLexT). This approach combines deep semantic analysis of the lexicon with a special focus on synonymy, as developed by the Moscow Semantic School, and traditional methods of grammatical typology. The language sample includes more than 30 languages.
