Description The verb ´walk´ used in the locative inversion construction is almost invariably translated by means of the Czech verb ´kráčet, whereas the´Czech verb ´jít´, otherwise the commonest translation counterpart of ´walk´, is used very seldom. The reason for the overwhelming preference for ´kráčet´ lies in the verb´s evaluative meaning potential, underlain by the salience of the verb´s manner component and the verb´s ability to profile the mover´s experiential self.
