This volume is a collection of articles which present the results of investigations into the grammar, semantics and pragmatics of deictic expressions in several languages. Special emphasis is placed on contrastive studies that take cognitive and cultural context into account. Both the empirical and theoretical studies focus on the ways in which spatial, temporal, personal and textual entities are conceptualised and referred to. The cognitive approach proves to be a promising perspective combining aspects of perception, reasoning and linguistic expression to reveal what seems to be at the very heart of deictics.

Table of Contents
“What has become obvious, is that research on deixis has grown out of its traditional focus on the nature of the referent (space, time, person) and is moving on to investigating the more subtle aspects of the process of referring itself. [...] all in all a very stimulating volume.”
