    Constructional Meaning and Knowledge-Driven Interpretation of Motion Events: Examples From Three Romance Varieties.Alfonsina Buoniconto - 2020 - Gestalt Theory 42 (1):31-42.
    Summary Covert encoding is one of the strategies available to languages for the encoding of motion, in which, in accordance with the laws of Gestalt, the meaning of an expression encoding motion is not coincident with the mere sum of the meanings of each of its constitutive units, relying on the mediation of grammatical and cotext­established knowledge for its interpretability. Moving on from a data set gathered for a previous study and adopting a holistic, constructional approach, several strategies were found (...)

    On the Verbalization of Space and Direction Concepts.Michail L. Kotin - 2020 - Gestalt Theory 42 (1):5-15.
    Summary The paper deals with selected problems of the verbalization of the concepts “place”, “space” and “direction”, with a special consideration of their successive development in language and in language acquisition. The theoretical background are assumptions concerning the genesis of the concept of place and movement. Some of them claim that movement and direction precede the conceptualization of place and space. However, numerous linguistic phenomena seem to prove the opposite hypothesis, namely that the concept of place and, thus, its verbalization (...)

    Moving Words.Savina Raynaud - 2020 - Gestalt Theory 42 (1):17-29.
    Summary We move words and words move us. To describe and explain how and why this happens, the present article focuses on Prague traditions, both on the philosophical and linguistic elements. The semantic and syntactic approach is summarized, as developed by Anton Marty, belonging to the Brentano school, and by Vilém Mathesius, founder of the Prague Linguistic Circle, as well as by Jan Firbas, who developed the functional sentence perspective into the theory of communicative dynamism. The four Principles of FSP (...)

    Perceptual Analysis According to Rudolf Arnheim’s Gestalt Theoretical Approach in Structuralist Landscape Planning.Ingrid Scharmann & Gerda Schneider - 2020 - Gestalt Theory 42 (1):43-61.
    Summary Landscape planning lacked an evidence-based method for the reflection of planning models on the imaginary level in order to present the image content and the relationships in the image as the basis for interpretation in a verifiable manner. The contribution is based on the thesis that the perceptual analysis according to Rudolf Arnheim can be translated into landscape planning. The case study, here an illustration with two plan sketches for urban and landscape development, is described and interpreted with the (...)
