URPP Language and Space

Space in Language

The third topic Space in Language focuses on the manifestation of spatial features and spatiality in general in the lexicon and in the grammar of natural languages. Research on this topic is carried out within the Research Group Spatial References, and, partly, within the Research Group Interactional Spaces. Linguists and geographers interact here in order to understand how people talk about space and what this may tell us about their spatial conceptualizations.
