Abstract:

Every language has a way of talking about seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting
and touching. In about a quarter of the world's languages, grammatical
evidentials express means of perception. In some languages verbs of vision
subsume cognitive meanings. In others, cognition is associated with a verb of
auditory perception, touch, or smell. "Vision" is not the universally
preferred means of perception. In numerous cultures, taboos are associated
with forbidden visual experience. Vision may be considered intrusive and
aggressive, and linked with power. In contrast, "hearing" and "listening" are
the main avenues for learning, understanding and "knowing".

The studies presented in this book set out to explore how these meanings and
concepts are expressed in languages of Africa, Oceania, and South America.
