Background Questions for the “Enter”/”Exit” Research

How do languages encode different kinds of movement, and what features do people pay attention to when describing motion events? This document outlines topics concerning the investigation of “enter” and “exit” events. It helps contextualise research tasks that examine this domain (see Motion Elicitation and Enter/Exit animation) and gives some pointers about what other questions can be explored.
