- This paper defines ¤movement verbs' as those which denote an event of location change, and characterizes their lexical semantic structures consisting of event-, argument-, case- and qualia- structures. The paper classifies and accounts for the argument alternations of the verbs in terms of under-specification of event structure. Events of location change involve a moving object and its trajectory; the former is denoted by AGENT or THEME argument and the latter is denoted by a locative argument (SOURCE, GOAL, DIRECTION, or PATH). The paper illustrates six types of argument structures of movement verbs, which include transitive verbs as well as intransitive ones. We assume that the aspectual meaning of the verb is determined by the event structure, particularly the HEAD-feature of the event (Pustejovsky 1995). Assuming eight different simplex/complex event structures, the paper illustrates seven argument alternation patterns of motion verbs, and accounts for their polysemous nature in terms of underspecification of HEAD-value.
