An invited talk by Victoria Hasko, University of Georgia, 12:00 pm, Thursday, February 28, 1418 Van Hise Hall

This talk discusses research on the domain of motion to investigate the differences in how native speakers of English and Russian talk about motion and space and how they interrogate motion events not only verbally but also visually.
