Abstract:

This monograph offers the first in-depth lexical and semantic analysis of
motion verbs in their development from Latin to nine Romance languages —
Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan, Occitan, Sardinian,
and Raeto-Romance — demonstrating that the patterns of innovation and
continuity attested in the data can be accounted for in cognitive linguistic
terms. At the same time, the study illustrates how the insights gained from
Latin and Romance historical data have profound implications for the cognitive
approaches to language — in particular, for Leonard Talmy’s motion-framing
typology and George Lakoff and Mark Johnson’s conceptual metaphor theory. The
book should appeal to scholars interested in historical Romance linguistics,
cognitive linguistics, and lexical change.
