Chapter 13Time domain matrix modeling in cognitive linguistic research
This chapter’s objective is to elaborate the criteria for estimating the proportion of abstractness :: concreteness of the TIME concept. As a device, the time domain matrix profiles time’s ontological features such as its origin, type, qualities, antithesis, object of influence, measure unit, measuring device, and metaphoric correlates. The chapter finds that abstractness :: concreteness of the time domain matrix depends on the type of construal of the world in which it is schemed – scientific (philosophical) or poetic. An overall tendency towards increasing concreteness is identified. This research is based on a corpus of 15,000 collocations with the lexical unit time and its historical equivalents. These collocations are featured in British philosophical and poetic works from corresponding historical periods between the seventh and twentieth centuries.
