The study focuses on the schematization of natural categories of the meaning in the preposition over, and contrasting it with the schematization of relevant spatial relations in Serbian and Ukrainian. Contrasting similar verbalizations of spatial relations in Ukrainian and Serbian has enabled us to conclude that distinct senses of over correlate with image-schemas characteristic for various Ukrainian prepositions – mainly над and через, but also partially за and на, and Serbian prepositions preko and nad. We deduce that in Ukrainian and Serbian the presented set of scenes are not conceptualized as a chain of connected variations derived from the same proto-scene and possessing one or two changes in the scene that provoke a distinct sense, but rather as different scenes that represent various categories of spatial relations, and they are not connected via derivation.
