1. Spatial relations in Hinuq and Bezhta
This chapter deals with spatial relations in Hinuq and Bezhta, two Nakh-Daghestanian languages. The focus is on the expression of location by means of the rich spatial case systems of these languages. Additionally, the contribution of postpositions to the expression of spatial relations, and the coding of temporal relations by means of spatial cases are taken into account. In order to visually represent the functional range of the spatial cases multidimensional scaling has been used. The central concepts for the expression of location in Hinuq and Bezhta that can be identified are position, contact, and in Hinuq animacy.
Keywords: location, multidimensional scaling, Nakh-Daghestanian languages, spatial case, topological picture series
