None of the varieties investigated here uses the complex PP+ADV constructions categorically for a particular picture stimulus. Since both simple PPs and complex PP+ADV constructions occur for the same pictures and in the same varieties, the data analyzed here do not support any other systematic semantic differentiation than the ‘redundancy-hypothesis’. Other means of data elicitation and/or meta-semantic judgements of informants might shed more light on this issue. 27% of all PP+ADV constructions are uttered in order to describe a stimulus which represents a spatial setting where the figure surrounds the ground: (11) dr haag isch ums huus ume the fence is around-the house around MU (12) s mäscheli isch um d cherze ume the ribbon is around the candle around MU Almost 9% of all PP+ADV constructions can be attributed to the inverse relation of a ground-element encircling the figure, as shown by example (13): (13) de öpfel isch im ring inne the apple is in(side) the ring in(side) MU It seems very clear that the encircling configurations favor the use of PP+ADV, and more precisely redundant PP+ADV constructions.

Figure 1), the primary role of the verb is to express the activating process in the locating expression. In the case of static spatial relations, a semantically quite simple and schematic concept is fully sufficient to express this activating process. The simple fact that the figure ‘is’ at a particular place can be rendered by the equivalents of sein (‘to be’) in all varieties and languages within the scope of this paper. e. there are semantically more complex verbs which can be used in responses to the picture stimuli.
