Abstract

The study focuses on the verbs höras, in Swedish, and kuulua, in Finnish, expressing the audible. The aim is to reflect the semantic structure of audibility and dynamic conceptualisation of the hearing event, based on the profiling concept and the path diagram from cognitive language. Both verbs are built with a topic referring to stimulus, whereas the story is implicit. Höras is most often associated with the expression of the location of the stimulus, while constructions in kuulua have a strong tendency to identify the starting point of sound. We analyse this difference in terms of linguistic updates. With a trace of personal identification, höras presented the event at an update stage that goes beyond potential and makes it possible to highlight its location. Kuulua conceptualises the event at its initial stage as an ability to be perceived by an unspecified recipient.
