Abstract

This study investigates how English path verbs and manner verbs are translated into Korean. In Korean, the verb-framed language, the manner component of motion events may be omitted because Korean speakers tend not to pay much attention to the manner part of the motion events. The similar tendency has been reported in some previous studies, which compare Korean speakers’ recognition of motion events with those of English speakers. When motion events in a satellite-frame language are translated into a verb-framed language, the manner component of motion events may be omitted. This study examines how English path verbs and manner verbs of describing motion events are translated into Korean, using English-Korean video translation data. In this study, the authors claim that English speakers and Korean speakers recognize motion events differently, and different types of motion verbs are used to describe the same motion events.
