Abstract:

The category P belongs to a less studied area in theoretical linguistics,
which has only recently attracted considerable attention. This volume
brings together pioneering work on adpositions in spatial relations from
different theoretical and cross-linguistic perspectives. The common theme
in these contributions is the complex semantic and syntactic structure of
PPs. Analyses are presented in several different frameworks and approaches,
including generative syntax, optimality theoretic semantics and syntax,
formal semantics, mathematical modeling, lexical syntax, and pragmatics.
Among the languages featured in detail are English, German, Hebrew, Igbo,
Italian, Japanese, and Persian. This volume will be of interest to students
and researchers of formal semantics, syntax and language typology, as well
as scholars with a more general interest in spatial cognition.
