    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Abstract.&lt;/strong&gt; Daphne du Maurier&amp;rsquo;s 1938 novel &lt;em&gt;Rebecca&lt;/em&gt; 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 &lt;em&gt;Rebecca&lt;/em&gt;, drawing upon three lines of linguistic research consistent with a Cognitive Linguistic approach: (i) an interest in understanding and appreciating ordinary readers&amp;rsquo; actual responses (rather than merely relying upon &amp;ldquo;expert&amp;rdquo; readers&amp;rsquo; responses), (ii) the construction of worlds or &amp;ldquo;spaces&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
