dc.description.abstractThe Place Constructions together with their nearest related forms constitute an exceedingly large and important part of the division known as adverbial constructions. How numerous they are may be partly realized from the fact that in the preparation for the writing of this thesis, the number of separate instances of merely the nouns in Place constructions collected from the first six books of Virgil's Aeneid was in the neighborhood of 1600. This makes an average of about one such Place construction to every three verses. Consequently, the following limitations have been set in the treatment of this subject. The ground covered is the first six books of Virgil's Aeneid. Only the Place constructions found in substantives are given, thus excluding adverbs and clauses of Place. Further, the nouns were divided into the following classes as to meaning: (1) Those pertaining to the Land, (2) to the Sea, (3) the Sky, (4) the Works of Man, e. g. cities, buildings, and objects of manufacture, (5) Parts of the Body, and (6) Miscellaneous, including figurative ideas, idioms, etc. This thesis with a few exceptions is confined to the first three classes -- to terms of the Land, the Sea, and the Sky, and in quoting passages, the aim has been to give every example of words belonging to these three classes that occur in the first six books of the Aeneid. In Chapters V and VI in a few instances, other than Land, Sea and Sky terms are quoted and attention will be called to this fact under the heads where such further quotations are made.eng
