Space through Language

The topic Space through Language is devoted to the verbal (and nonverbal) communication of spatial features and spatiality in general within individual discourse, tracing space back to the manifold ways in which it comes to be perceived among those being present in a face-to-face encounter. Research in the Research Group Accommodation and Social Categorization is concerned with the general phenomenon that individuals tend to adjust and fine-tune their communicative behavior according to what they perceive. The Research Group Interactional Spaces is concerned with spatial aspects of the communicative situation, the complex and spatially creative interplay of language, perception, movement and action.
