Sitting, Standing, and Lying in Frames: A Frame-Based Approach to Posture Verbs

Thomas Gamerschlag, Wiebke Petersen, Liane Ströbel


Posture verbs which allow for an extended locative use, such as sit, stand and lie, make reference to specific parts of the localized object, to the orientation of prominent object axes and to positional information, which are perceived by means of cognitive modules such as gestalt recognition and spatial perception. These properties render posture verbs an excellent object for the investigation of cognition and language. This paper analyzes the three basic posture verbs of German (sitzen ‘sit’, stehen ‘stand’ and liegen ‘lie’) in terms of frame representations. It turns out that frames can serve as a highly flexible device for decompositional analyses that is at the same time a cognitively plausible knowledge representation format.

Zustandsveränderung – Herausforderungen und Chancen

Arthur Schopenhauer once said: “Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal.”

We all know how vital it is for a language to „change“ and to be able to adapt to changes, but how do we actually refer to and express the fact that something is changing?

The linguistic session „Zustandsveränderung/Change of state“ at the XXXIII. Deutscher Romanistentag (22.-25.09.2013, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg) is tackling the challenge of analyzing how different change of state scenarios are encoded linguistically.  For information concerning the session „Zustandsveränderung“ please visit the following link: SESSION „Change of State“

A preliminary program is available here: PROGRAM

Invited speakers (with links to their homepages): Geraldine Legendre (Baltimore), Patrick Caudal (Paris) and John Beavers (Austin)
