Does temporal language depend on spatial language? This widespread view is
intuitively appealing since spatial and temporal expressions are often
similar or identical. Also, metaphors consistently express temporal
phenomena in terms of spatial language, pointing to a close semantic and
conceptual relationship. But what about the application of the two kinds of
linguistic expressions in natural discourse?

The book draws together findings on terms that describe the relation of
objects or events to each other (such as in front/behind, before/after,
etc), highlighting the relationship between cognition and language usage.
Using the method of cognitively motivated discourse analysis, novel
empirical results are presented to complement earlier findings. The
detailed investigation of a selected range of terms that appear to be
parallel in space and time highlights both similarities and fundamental
differences in their application. As a result, a new picture emerges: The
concepts of space and time are represented in language usage in various
systematic ways, reflecting how we understand the world - and at the same
time reflecting how our concepts of space and time differ fundamentally.

The volume contributes to a debate that has been of interest for cognitive
linguists for several decades, concerning the understanding of transfer
processes between two conceptually intertwined domains. The specific
contribution of this work consists of addressing the novel question of how
such processes come into play in the actual application of relevant
expressions in natural discourse. By adopting established approaches from
Discourse Analysis for issues that are deeply rooted in interdisciplinary
research in Cognitive Science, insights are drawn together from two
hitherto largely unrelated fields of research to approach the topic from an
original perspective, leading to a deeper understanding of the relationship
between the domains of space and time and their expression in language.
