"Mapping Spatial PPs" focuses on a particular aspect of the internal syntaxof prepositional phrases that has been relatively neglected in previousstudies: the fine-grained articulation of their structure. Withcontributions from top scholars in the field, this volume investigates suchcomponents 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. MappingSpatial PPs demonstrates that the internal structure of prepositionalphrases is richer than previously recognized.
