Abstract:

Using language and thought to fix events in time is one of the most complex
computational feats that humans perform. In the first book-length taxonomy of
temporal frames of reference, Vyvyan Evans provides an overview of the role of
space in structuring human representations of time. Challenging the assumption
that time is straightforwardly structured in terms of space, he shows that
while space is important for temporal representation, time is nevertheless
separate and distinguishable from it. Evans argues for three distinct temporal
frames of reference in language and cognition and evaluates the nature of
temporal reference from a cross-linguistic perspective. His central thesis is
that the hallmark of temporal reference is transience, a property unique to
the domain of time. This important study has implications not only for the
relationship between space and time, but also for that between language and
figurative thought, and the nature of linguistically-mediated meaning
construction.
