1.5.Bibliographical notes

The terms deictic, inherent, absolute adposition are taken from Grabowski & Weiß (1995) and Levelt (1996). The vector analysis of the spatial adpositions has been adopted from a series of papers by Zwarts (1994/1994/1996/1997), Zwarts and Winter (1997), and Helmantel (1998/2002). Jackendoffʼs work (1983/1990) has been a source of inspiration in many respects. A more technical but good overview of a number of recent semantic approaches to adpositions can be found in Gehrke (2008: Section 2.2).
