Boundary crossing is described in the literature on motion-event encoding as a subcomponent of Path (cf. Grinevald 2011, inter alia), triggered by a tridimensional conceptualization of the Ground (i.e. the point of reference of the Figure’s displacement).

Among motion events, those entailing the crossing of a boundary are both conceptually and linguistically more salient since speakers tend to interpret them in terms of changes of state (cf. Filipović 2007: 37ff.). As a consequence of this particular status, the boundary-crossing parameter (cf. Aske 1989; Slobin & Hoiting 1994) plays a crucial role in the choice of the lexicalization strategy for the main conceptual components of motion events, i.e. Path and Manner.

In the first part of this talk, I will compare two ancient languages, i.e. Ancient Greek and Latin, as for the patterns of boundary-crossing expression in the initial and in the final segment of Path, in the light of the Source-Goal asymmetry theory (cf. Ikegami 1987; Kopecka & Ishibashi 2011; inter alia). In the second section, I will analyze the evolution of boundary-crossing expressions respectively in Modern Greek and in Romance languages, in order to shed new light on the typological shift from Satellite-framed to Verb-framed languages (cf. Iacobini & Fagard 2011, inter alia).

From a methodological point of view, both analyses exploit parallel corpora as a useful, despite controversial, tool in language description and typology.
