Spatial Meanings and Russian Prosody: a Corpus Study

The objective of this paper is to see if we can find prosodic features that can express spatial meanings on corpus material. The main two questions that we try to answer are: 1. What prosodic instruments express spatial meanings? 2. What characteristics of space are coded by prosody in Russian language? The source of the data is the "Stories about dreams" (which contains 129 stories (24 hours of recorded speech).
