Description

In this chapter, the author offers a description of the linguistic means available in Basque for the lexicalisation of space as well as their usage, that is, which of these devices is used more oft en by Basque speakers when they talk about space. More concretely, this chapter deals with those devices used for the description of topological relations, what Levinson et al. (2003: 486) call basic locative constructions, i.e. answers to ‘where’ questions.
