The present study concerns itself with the development of a systematic set of instruments for describing concrete space in fictional narrative texts. It contains chapters on the linguistic generation of space, on its narrative mediation through the narration of events, of perceptions and through descriptions, on spatial structures and space-specific configurations of kwledge. In it, account is also taken of concepts from cognitive psychology and cognitive linguistics, from pragmatics, social geography and evolutionary psychology. The concepts developed are tested on examples of text.
