Abstract:

This volume presents new research by the Topoi group "The Conception of Spaces
in Language" on the expression of spatial relations in ancient languages. The
six articles in this volume discuss static and dynamic aspects of the spatial
grammars of Ancient to Medieval Greek, Akkadian, Hittite, and Hieroglyphic
Ancient Egyptian, as well as field data on eight modern languages (Arabic,
Hebrew, English, German, Russian, French, Italian, and Spanish). Among the
grams discussed are spatial particles, motion verbs, case and, most
prominently, spatial prepositions. All ancient language data are fully
explained in linguistic word-by-word glosses and are therefore accessible to
scholars who are not themselves experts on the respective languages. Taken
together, these contributions extend the scope of research on spatial grammar
back to the third millennium BCE.
