Complex Landscape Terms in Seri
O'Meara, Carolyn; Bohnemeyer, Jurgen
Language Sciences, v30 n2-3 p316-339 Mar-May 2008
The nominal lexicon of Seri is characterized by a prevalence of analytical descriptive terms. We explore the consequences of this typological trait in the landscape domain. The complex landscape terms of Seri classify geographic entities in terms of their material make-up and spatial properties such as shape, orientation, and merological relations. This analytical system of linguistic categorization opens up an intriguing window into the conceptualization of the landscape domain. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
