Description

The purpose of the present work is to begin to test the universality of the Principled Polysemy model by applying the model to the Russian spatial particle, za. 1 Za is a particularly good test of the model because it is highly polysemous. In addition, the analysis of za entails considering how the Principled Polysemy model applies to a language whose system of spatial referencing includes a complex system of case marking, which is lacking in English. In this area of the analysis, the authors have been greatly influenced by Janda’s (1993, 2000) work on Russian case.
