Abstract:

This volume is a collection of articles which present the results of
investigations into the grammar, semantics and pragmatics of deictic
expressions in several languages. Special emphasis is placed on
contrastive studies that take cognitive and cultural context into
account. Both the empirical and theoretical studies focus on the ways
in which spatial, temporal, personal and textual entities are
conceptualised and referred to. The cognitive approach proves to be a
promising perspective combining aspects of perception, reasoning and
linguistic expression to reveal what seems to be at the very heart of
deictics.
