Espace, temps, prépositions

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Espace, temps, prépositions is a basic spatial-temporal ontology, resulting from works on mereotopology and reference frames, defining the basic semantics of spatial, temporal and spatial-temporal prepositions in French. Tijana Asic analyzes the non-standard uses of French prepositions, comparing them to those in English, Serb and other Slavic languages, Swahili, Kikuyu, Japanese, Arabic and Luo. The results support the hypotheses of linguistic localism and thematic relations, according to which “the cognition of space precedes that of time.” They likewise demonstrate that in this domain the differences between languages are superficial and can be explained by Optimality theory. A certain number of conceptual primitives result from the study, such as the oppositions of massive/countable, static/dynamic, contact and capacity.
