9783110189490: Marquesan: A Grammar of Space (Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TILSM] 169)

Marquesan, an endangered Polynesian language, is remarkable because its speakers use a spatial orientation system based on local landmarks in the environment to describe spatial relations even in micro-level space. This volume is an in-depth empirical analysis of the verbal forms and means of spatial reference and the conception of space in this language.

Review:

"The book is a good introduction to the ('Ua Pou variety of) Marquesan. The reader is provided with a comprehensive overview of the linguistics of space in general and of Marquesan in particular. I recommend the book to all students of Polynesian languages and thoses linguists who are engaged in research on spatial relations."In: STUF 63.2/2010

Book Description De Gruyter, Germany, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This volume investigates the linguistic and semantic encodings and conceptions of space in the East-Polynesian language Marquesan by focusing on the great variety of language- and culture-specific ways of referring to space, thus documenting an essential part of human behaviour and everyday communication in a South Pacific island population. On the basis of a large corpus of both natural and elicited spoken language data the morphosyntactic and semantic properties of all relevant lexical and grammatical units and constructions used for spatial reference are analysed in detail. Remarkable for this language is the fact that a particular kind of spatial orientation system based on local landmarks of the environment - a so-called absolute system - is used for spatial description even on a micro-level or so-called table-top space. Marquesan -A Grammar of Space is the first comprehensive description and in-depth study of spatial language to be found in an Austronesian language. Apart from examining the complex sociolinguistic situation, the degree of language endangerment in the bilingual speech community and the resulting rapid linguistic change in spatial language use, the book also offers a detailed description of the theoretical background of language and space research and the linguistic variability to be found across languages. Moreover, the volume contains an extensive grammatical sketch of Marquesan which complements the language description of the specific domain space in a useful way providing the reader with general insights into one of the not well documented Oceanic languages. The volume addresses linguists, psycholinguists, anthropologists, fieldworking linguists, and especially Oceanists and Austronesianists. Moreover, it provides important insights for researchers from other disciplines that are interested in the study of space. Bookseller Inventory # APC9783110189490
