Abstract

This book focuses on how direction is represented in language, and how direction is represented in spatial terms for the purpose of language. Two issues are addressed in particular. The first issue concerns the constituents of language encoding direction. Which linguistic constituents encode direction, and how do they do it? The second issue concerns the possible vehicle for representing a direction such as 'in front of the car'. What are the spatial distinctions underlying such linguistic expressions? [taken from Chapter 1]
