Sample text

It is thus not surprising that the use of case which marks a certain spatial construal can also be extended into the domain of time. In the sentence Nie lubię spacerować nocą (Not I-like to-walk night-INSTR, "I don't like to walk at night") the instrumental reinterprets the 'time-region' (the night) in the same way as in the case of space. It is in fact common for nouns denoting major units of time (such as an hour, a week, a month, a year) to be used in the plural and with the instrumental, marking (as in the spatial cases) to indicate the speaker's annoyance with the length of time spent working towards the goal (as in the case of spatial uses of the instrumental achieving a goal is not part of the construal).

Without an extensive corpus study, descriptive linguistics would never have managed to single out a class of 'course-of-events conditionals' and similarly, we would never have arrived at the insight of the existence of a superordinate category of 'pragmatic conditionals', comprising a fairly heterogeneous number of subcategories. e. that of 'hypothetical conditionals'. Notes * We want to thank the two anonymous reviewers for their highly insightful remarks and queries. 1 It is, for instance, not discussed in Comrie (1986), Haegeman (1984), Sweetser (1990), Sweetser (1996), and Dancygier and Sweetser (1996).

As a result, our front/back orientation in the surrounding space is conceptualized via the front and back regions adjacent HOW POLISH STRUCTURES SPACE 35 to the human body. However, the actual expressions motivated by the conceptualization are not always interpreted symmetrically. For example, the expression iść przodem (go front-INSTR) describes going in front of someone in the same direction (through the 'region' in front of them, which is moving along with the forward motion). On the other hand, a with your back (not your face) facing the direction of the motion (like a crayfish); in other words, this is walking through the 'region' behind you.
