Perspectivizing Space in Bāŋlā Discourse


The paper attempts to conceptualize the production and comprehension of spatial perspectives as the synchronization of intentions and contentions in a linguistic discourse. In doing so, it investigates the acts of intending and contending in invoking and instantiating the categories. The paper explains perspective setting and taking in terms of intending and contending which are crucial in shaping the conceptual route for the gradual revelation of the communicative intent. Answer to these questions, in turn, results into an understanding of what constitute the perspectivization process in a discourse.
