gureuda (구르다)

show comment

It sounds awkward to express the direction together with this verb only since it seems to have stative semantics (cf. ex. 12). The direction of motion can be expressed when building a complex predicate together with ga- 'go' (cf. ex. 13). However, this has not been classified as an alternation here since I am not sure to what extent this could be seen as a productive, morphosyntactic operation that applies to the class of motion verbs.
