The paper deals with the description of terms of FALLING in the framework of Moscow Lexical typology group. The main case study is a Pamir language Shughni  which represents a non-standard way in structuring this domain with surprising intersections between FALLING and related semantic fields. Shughni data (coming from the recent field work of RSU HSE) is considered in a cross-linguistic perspective and compared with Russian, Komi and other systems.
