Based on Bowerman & Pederson’s Topological Relations Picture Series (TRPS), the author has researched the semantic space of static spatial prepositions of Hieroglyphic Ancient Egyptian (Egyptian, Afro-Asiatic), Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. This repository publication publishes the raw data.
This data collection consists of PDF print-outs of the raw Topological Relations Picture Series (TRPS) data on the modern languages (Tunisian) Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. The data was collected mostly by the way of questionnaires (PPT or PDF) between 2009 and early 2011. The questionnaires are also included in the collection.
The call for data was distributed via academic mailing lists, especially via the Egyptologists’ Electronic Forum.
