This book brings together three perspectives on language and space that are quite well-researched within themselves, but which so far are lacking productive interconnections. Specifically, the book aims to interconnect the following research areas:

- Language, space, and geography
- Grammar, space, and cognition
- Language and interactional spaces

The contributions in this book cover geographical language variation within and across languages, language use in stationary and mobile interactional spaces, computer-mediated communication, and spatial reasoning across languages. This range of issues showcases the thematic and methodological breadth of research on language and space. In order to identify interconnections, the respective contributions are accompanied by commentaries that highlight common threads.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science                             Discourse Analysis                             Sociolinguistics
Written In: English (eng)
