This paper describes the semantics of Czech verbs of motion. It examines predictions of the event-based accounts of plurality in the verbal domain (Krifka 1992; Kratzer 2005; van Geenhoven 2004) and applies it to Czech data. It connects morphological processes with the cumulativity and generic operators in semantics.
