Path in Spontaneous Motion Events in Yuhup

Ana María Ospina-Bozzi

This paper presents path expression in constructions describing spontaneous translational motion events in Yuhup (Naduhup family), with the aim of contributing to the typology of the expression of motion events. It focuses on the specific resources available in Yuhup for expressing such spontaneous translational motion events, pointing to the prevalence of path expression in a rich system of simple and compound verbs (and not
in complements), as well as giving an overall vision of the syntactic constructions they head.
