The construal of entity permanence
2009 (English)In: Studies in Language and Cognition, Cambridge: Cambridge Scholars Publishing , 2009, 97-110 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter concerns how we individuate entities more abstract than material objects and how we judge different instances as being instances of the same entity. Linguistic construals of sports teams in Swedish are examined as an example of how collective human institutions can be treated as permanent entities. Just like prototype categories, such entities must be conceived as rather flexible, and it is argued that they have a dual nature concerning the type vs. instance distinction.
