Title: Mapping Spatial PPs
Subtitle: The Cartography of Syntactic Structures, Volume 6
Written By: Guglielmo Cinque

Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

"Mapping Spatial PPs" focuses on a particular aspect of the internal syntax
of prepositional phrases that has been relatively neglected in previous
studies: the fine-grained articulation of their structure. With
contributions from top scholars in the field, this volume investigates such
components as direction, location, axial part, deictic center, absolute
(ambiental) and relative view point, using evidence from Romance, Germanic,
and African languages, with references to other language families. Mapping
Spatial PPs demonstrates that the internal structure of prepositional
phrases is richer than previously recognized.
