Description The paper is a contribution to a hitherto unexplored area in English-Czech contrastive semantics. It examines differences in the construal of walking, the most prototypical type of human locomotion. Based on the data from InterCorp, a synchronic parallel translation corpus, it presents a cognitive oriented analysis of the semantics of the English verb ´walk´ and its nearest Czech counterparts, i.e. the verbs ´jít´ and ´kráčet´.
