(p.40) 4 Consistency in Successive Spatial Utterances
Spatial Language and Dialogue

Constanze Vorwerg

Oxford University Press

This chapter reports consistency effects across successive spatial utterances. While initial choices are often influenced by spatial-conceptual factors, speakers tend to repeat frame of reference, word category (adverb, preposition, or prepositional adverb), and dimensional order in syntactic combinations for encoding direction throughout a localization sequence. Effects may result from self-priming between utterances.

Keywords:   consistency effects, self-alignment, localization sequences, frames of reference, spatial terms
