Mapping Spatial PPs makes a speciality of a selected element of the inner syntax of prepositional words that has been particularly overlooked in past reviews: the fine-grained articulation in their constitution. With contributions from most sensible students within the box, this quantity investigates such parts as path, place, axial half, deictic middle, absolute (ambiental) and relative view aspect, utilizing facts from Romance, Germanic, and African languages, with references to different language households. Mapping Spatial PPs demonstrates that the inner constitution of prepositional words is richer than formerly recognized.
