This chapter investigates the observed complementarity of manner and result as components of lexicalized verb meaning. We provide a precise characterization of these meaning components: results involve scalar changes, while manners involve nonscalar changes. We propose a verb may only lexicalize one type of change, giving rise to manner/result complementarity.

Keywords:   motion, change of state, manner, result, scalar change
