Pluractional conceptual space: three case studies and their typological relevance

This paper investigates how pluractional constructions work in three specific languages adopting the analysis proposed in Mattiola [2017a]. Cross-linguistically, these constructions are multifunctional and can be explained through semantic maps. These case studies also raise certain issues on the grammatical status of pluractionality: cross-linguistically grammatical categories are not universal, but they seem to be best conceived as comparative concepts [Haspelmath 2010].
