We propose a spatio-temporal markup for the annotation of motion predicates in text, informed by a lexical semantic classifica- tion of these verbs. We incorporate this classification within a spatial event struc- ture, based on Generative Lexicon Theory. We discuss how the spatial event structure suggests changes to annotation systems de- signed solely for temporal or spatial phe- nomena, resulting in spatio-temporal an- notation.
