Spatial Deixis in Chiwere.
Hopkins, Jill D.
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v15 n2 p60-72 1990
This paper examines spatial deixis in Chiwere (Siouan) in the framework of two theories of deixis. Denny (1978) attempts to define a set of distinctive features for spatial deixis, while Rauh (1983) uses spatial deixis as a template for organizing all deictic dimensions. Chiwere data suggest language and dimension specific expansion of both theories to include the features vertitive versus non-vertitive and location/stationary versus direction/motion. (Contains 16 references.) (Author)
