Verbs of motion are verbs that are used to describe a change of location, "moving" from one place to another.

These include e.g. jaH go, ghoS come, approach leng travel and so on.

vIH move (be in motion) is not one of these.

Depending on prefixes

Marc Okrand explained in HolQeD[citation needed]:

The prefix makes the difference in meaning. jI- means I'm moving along in someplace. vI- means I'm moving along to someplace.

Example: lupDujHom vIchegh "I return to the shuttle."
