Meeting Description:

The Séminaire des Sciences du Langage (Sesla) and the department of Germanic
studies from the Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis are pleased to announce a
one-day workshop on expressions of posture and motion in Germanic languages. The
workshop is held in Brussels on October 24, 2008.

This one-day conference aims at exploring the expression of postures and motions
from various perspectives and linguistic theories (language typology, cognitive
linguistics, generative linguistics). It will deal with the expression and the
marking of horizontality, verticality and movement in general, and their
linguistic patterns of lexicalization in Germanic languages in particular.

It will further extend the field of research to other syntactic or
morpho-syntactic elements in sentences, such as locational predicates, aspect
markers, auxiliaries, classifiers, case markers, etc. The conference also
intends to offer a broad cross-linguistic overview of the expression of postures
and motions. From the point of view of conceptualization, it will examine the
relationship between posture/location events and motion events and their expression.
