Samenvatting

This paper is part of an ongoing research program to under- stand the cognitive and functional bases for the origins and evolution of spatial language. Following a cognitive-functional approach, we first investigate the cross-linguistic variety in spatial language, with special at- tention for spatial perspective. Based on this language-typological data, we hypothesize which cognitive mechanisms are needed to explain this variety and argue for an interdisciplinary approach to test these hypothe- ses. We then explain how experiments in artificial language evolution can contribute to that and give a concrete example.
