A Linguistic Image of Nature: The Burmese Numerative Classifier System
Becker, Alton L.
Linguistics, 165, 109-121, Dec 1 75
The Burmese classifier system is coherent because it is based upon a single elementary semantic dimension: deixis. On that dimension, four distances are distinguished, distances which metaphorically substitute for other conceptual relations between people and other living beings, people and things, and people and concepts.
