Subject: i have a question ?


actually i have two: a question of linguistic terminology,
and a question about how to pose such a question. my hope
is that you will be able to direct me to a forum that will serve to
discuss if not answer my query.

what i'm wondering is: if 'deferment' is a temporal displacement,
what is the spatial equivalent ? that is: how do you call that feeling
of dropping a shoulder and rolling heads (chin down) - eyes lowered.
of what happens to objects as they slip away, lending to what lies
beyond.

it seems a sort of 'reference' without such a sense of active
putting off (or over). if "-fer" is to bear/carry, what kind gives over
by default, resulting in a spatially shifted focus. (the object - carrier -
may still exist, but only peripherally: on the outskirts of a spatial boundary).

curious to know where such a question might fit into all the others
floating around.

please respond.
jane.

Could someone please e-mail me the address for the journal "Language and

Thanks!
