Description
Sitting, standing, and lying are common at-rest positions for humans and the verbs which refer to these positions can have a significant role to play in some languages in addition to the basic posture sense. The additional uses of these verbs include locational verbs not restricted to human subjects, auxiliary verbs indicating some posture or shape of the subject, auxiliary verbs with a tense or aspect function, and classifiers used with nouns (cf. Early 2000; Heine et al. 1993; Kuteva 1999; Newman ins; Serra Borneto 1996; van Oosten 1982; Watkins 1976). The potential of these verbs to develop figurative uses, as well their potential to develop into grammatical morphemes, mean that these verbs deserve close study.
