6. Description Abstract In this chapter, the author examines the domain of motion independently of language in order to design a conceptual typology of motion that will serve linguistic analyses and applications of these analyses. Importantly, the typology attempts to categorise types of motion in a way that is concordant with how human minds categorise motion types in conceptualisation – using cognitive data obtained from categorisation tasks. In other words, the conceptual typology is not based on language patterns, as are linguistic typologies, but on conceptual categories.
