Abstract:

Events of putting things in places, and removing them from places, arefundamental activities of human experience. But do speakers of differentlanguages construe such events in the same way when describing them?This volume investigates placement and removal event descriptions from 18areally, genetically, and typologically diverse languages. Each chapterdescribes the lexical and grammatical means used to describe such events,and further investigates one of the following themes: syntax-semanticsmappings, lexical semantics, and asymmetries in the encoding of placementversus removal events. The chapters demonstrate considerablecrosslinguistic variation in the encoding of this domain, as well ascommonalities, e.g. in the semantic distinctions that recur across languages,and in the asymmetric treatment of placement versus removal events. Thisvolume provides a significant contribution within the emerging field ofsemantic typology, and will be of interest to researchers interested in thelanguage-cognition interface, including linguists, psychologists,anthropologists, and philosophers.
