Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: A-, Stanford University (Linguistics Department), course: Lexical semantics LIN233, 3 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This squib provides a short introduction into Hindi syntax, as far as it seems to be relevant for the grammaticalization of motion events in Hindi, and a summary of the most striking facts about the way Hindi grammaticalizes motion events. Within Talmy's (1985) terminology, Hindi probably is one of the clearer cases of a PATH language. Except for some (supposedly frequently used) MANNER encoding verbs like e.g. 'run', the notion of PATH can only be evoked by PATH-verbs. The set of MANNER-verbs that are compatible with the notion of PATH seems to only contain MANNER-verbs that can be observed to be compatible with a PATH interpretation in other (PATH)-languages (cf. Eve Clark, p.c.).
