dc.description.abstractThis book is a publication of Birte Kathage’s doctoral dissertation on the conceptualization of landscape in Mbukushu [mhw], a Bantu language spoken in Namibia, Angola, and Botswana. (The fieldwork on which the book is based was done in Namibia.) It is a rare (unique, in fact, to the best of this reviewer’s knowledge) example of a work applying empirical methods drawn from cognitive linguistics to a major semantic domain of a Bantu language. Since the geographic milieu of Mbukushu speakers is quite distinct from that of a typical speaker of, for example, German or English, this makes an examination of the Mbukushu conceptualization of landscape interesting not only from a general descriptive perspective but also from the comparative perspective of those interested in the ways speakers’ environments may play a role in shaping the semantic categorizations of their languages.en_US
