  "abstract": "<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Daphne du Maurier&rsquo;s 1938 novel <em>Rebecca</em> provides rich opportunities for the study of imaginary narrative spaces and the language associated with such spaces. The present study explores the linguistics of the imaginary narrative spaces in <em>Rebecca</em>, drawing upon three lines of linguistic research consistent with a Cognitive Linguistic approach: (i) an interest in understanding and appreciating ordinary readers&rsquo; actual responses (rather than merely relying upon &ldquo;expert&rdquo; readers&rsquo; responses), (ii) the construction of worlds or &ldquo;spaces&rdquo;, and (iii) the application of ideas from Cognitive Grammar. The study reveals a surprisingly intricate interplay of linguistic devices used in the construction of imaginary narrative spaces and the maintenance of such spaces in extended discourse.</p>",
