This chapter begins by laying out the purpose of the book, which is to examine the role of functional features in language and space, and then to explore what functional features might be and why such features might play a role in spatial language. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented, discussing how each chapter addresses the ideas of ‘feature’, ‘function’, and ‘features that are functional’, and its potential impact for spatial language.

Keywords:   functional features, spatial language, features, function
