Jörg Zinken is Senior Lecturer of Psychology of Communication and coordinator of the Language, Culture and Mind Research Group at the University of Portsmouth. His research interests cover topics from the interface between anthropological and cognitive linguistics, including universals and variation in multifunctionality patterns, contextual models of metaphor, and the semantics of prosody and syntax.

Description

This chapter discusses possibilities of making one aspect of such a linguistic anthropology of time more systematic. In particular, the author will discuss possible heuristic contributions that typologies of spatial frames of reference might make to typologies of temporal frames of reference.
