It is classic to point to the contrast between the multidimensional structure of space and the unidimensional organization of language. Whereas spatial objects are distributed over at least two dimensions, it is inherent to language to convey information in successive pieces, according to sequences governed by a set of syntactic rules. By construction, the full set of statements that are combined to verbally account for a situation can only be delivered sequentially. This constraint obliges the speaker to decide the order in which the components of a linguistic message will be stated and thus communicated to an interpreting agent. This is true of every subject of discourse, but in the case of space, a set of particular decisions will have to be made with the objective of finding a sequence that gives the addressee the possibility of building a coherent and informationally valid representation.
