Talmy's lexicalization patterns and Slobin's "Thinking for Speaking" hypothesis have attracted a lot of attention in fields such as linguistics, psychology, and anthropology, among others. While researchers might not agree on how, or to what extent, lexicalization patterns influence speakers' online/offline verbalization of motion, it is an undeniable fact that these theories have been, and still are, a "trending topic" in these research areas, evidenced by the contributions to this book. All papers brought together here use Talmy's and Slobin's ideas as a point of departure to explore how second language learners acquire these motion patterns, to explain what translators render in their target languages, and to refine some basic notions such as Path, Deixis, or fictive motion, and use them as a springboard to find new applications and understand other linguistic phenomena. All in all, this book provides insights into new ways of applying motion and widening theoretical perspectives, allowing these models to maintain their relevance and importance.
