Conceptual alternativity and the issue of basicness: evidence from Secoya locative constructions

This talk lays out the synchronic patterning of four constructions that express static location in Secoya (Tukanoan). It explores the construals encoded by these constructions and highlights the ways speakers use them creatively to elaborate on different aspects of locative scenes. Data collected from six speakers using visual stimuli reveal that each of the constructions elaborates on specific aspects of locative scenes. Responses for typical/atypical scenes, negative polarity statements, and frequency patterns show that speakers can choose conceptualizations that favor Ground geometry, Figure posture, more complex Figure dispositions, or marked perspectivizations. These results raise difficulties in identifying a Basic Locative Construction, suggesting that Secoya may not fit squarely into any type in existing typologies of spatial expression (e.g. Ameka & Levinson 2007). Additionally, the Secoya system raises questions about the relationship between conceptual alternativity and the notion of “basicness” with respect to construal types. Finally, we reflect on the methodological challenges and prospects that arise while using standardized stimuli in fieldwork contexts.
