Abstract: The article analyses the genitive and prepositional structures standing in competition to express purpose when used with verbs denoting movement and displacement. Empirical material for this study was selected on the basis of modern language usage. The analysis was based on the descriptive analytical and comparative method, the purpose-expressing tendencies of genitive and prepositional structures were approached from the quantitative point of view as well. The study of modern real usage shows that language users tend to shut the phrase vykti su vizitu ("to go on a visit"), being the underlying norm, towards the periphery, opting for the pure genitive of purpose - vykti vizito ("to go for a visit") - instead. The important thing here is that the usage of the genitive to express purpose does not against the systematic nature of language and this frequently occurring type of genitive usage would also imply that such meanings could have their own purpose. The analysis has revealed that synonymous expressions of purpose involving verbs that denote movement and displacement largely depend on the specific lexical meaning of genitive, and that certain standard linguistic models are taking shape here, such as vykti gastrolių ("to go on a gig")» vykti atostogų ("to go on a holiday"), but rinktis į posėdį ("to assemble to a meeting"), kviesti į pokalbį ("to invite to an interview"). As often as not, the purpose is expressed with pure genitive, less frequently, with genitive plus infinitive, the least productive model being to express purpose with infinitive alone
