Abstract:

The papers of this volume investigate how grammar codes the subjective
viewpoint of human language users, that is, how grammar reflects human
conceptualization. Some of the articles deal with spatial relations and
locations. They discuss how basic attributes of human conceptualization are
encoded in the grammatical expression of spatial relations. Other articles
concern embodiment in language, showing how conceptualization is mediated
by one's embodied experience of the world and ourselves. Finally, some of
the articles discuss coding of person focusing on the subjec­tivity of
conceptualization and how it is reflected in grammar. 


The articles show that conceptualization reflects the speaker's construal
of the situation, and furthermore, that it is intersubjective because it
reflects the speaker's understanding of the relations between the speech
act participants. The papers deal with Finnish, utilizing the rich
resources of Finnish grammar to contribute to issues in contemporary
linguistics and in particular to Cognitive Grammar.
