ABSTRACT

This paper attempts from a representative, we recognize the world's most primitive notion that spatial adjective “Yuan”,from the perspective of interpretation embodied cognition “distant” relationship with the action of the environment during use. We believe that the meaning and use of “Yuan” expression spatial distance has two reference frames:1) frame of reference constituted by the action,its subject of the sentence of location nouns and noun non location;2)Frame of reference constituted by anything other than the action. Indeed, the frame of reference outside the frame of reference of things by the behavior and action is a configuration composed of continuum. In the frame of reference by the action constituted “Yuan” conditions of use are: In implementing some kind of action on something, perception actors find it difficult or load (or even impossible to implement in some cases) is large, and the cause of the difficulties, the reasons for the load attributed to one thing and the distance between the actors away,it is possible to use “Yuan” to express them. “Yuan” is used in reference to the framework of action constituted, the perceived meaning of things in the environment for perception / actors, and based on the “affordance,” the perception of the environment is closely related to the setting of segmentation and frame of reference. In this situation, “Yuan” relationship between the expression of things and the body has become the basis of the speaker's understanding of things, a direct reflection of the relationship between language use and Embodied Cognition. Use a frame of reference for anything other than the acts constituted “Yuan” situations,in such a situation “Yuan” can be said that non-disembodied nature.
