FLaSC-Fashion Spatial-Cognitive Language

Everything you want  know on the Fashion Language/Tutto quello che desiderate sapere sul Linguaggio della Moda 

In every age and in every part of the world the Clothing Lexicon is marked by a series of spatial indicators, and this factor evidences that the denominations and the word-design  of dresses and accessories , better than others, can show the  importance  that the spatial-cognitive knowledge assumes in the linguistic and conceptual configuration of the artifacts. The mistery is what are the rules that command this semantic field and how many are nowadays the spatial facets multiplied around our body and how many are those disappeared?  For answering to this kind of questions we have a lot of electronic resources and devices  that allow to collecte  millions of utterances, to analyse them for aimed researches  and specific comparisons, and last but not not least, to verify the relevance of the encyclopedic context, that situational and that  linguistic.

Grace to these tools, we have created a digital corpus of journalistic texts and we have collect a series of data by narrative texts, images, catalogues, etc. and you find here:

  1. The first step in FLaSCDic> the prototype of the first spatial-cognitive dictionary, with 300 verbs of this sector. 
  2. A  series of tematic items in which the fashion language is examined considering the interfaces with:
