the spatial cognition of route direction
Route directions include a sequence of instructions indicating the way to find the destination. Route directions show what perspective the speaker/direction giver takes. And the speaker/direction giver refers to some landmarks to help with the direction seeking. The study reported here intended to identify the spatial cognition of the route direction in Mandarin. In the study, two groups of participants learned routes by maps or videos, respectively. Then, they generated route directions to help people find their way. Results revealed that both groups of participants use the route perspective while generating route directions. However, the landmarks which the map group more frequently referred to were around the critical points (the starting point, the terminal point, and the reorientation points). Most of landmarks that the video group mentioned were at the starting point and the terminal point. Others were related to the specific regions of the routes. Therefore, the sentence forms of referring to the landmark were found more in the route direction generated by the video group. The study concludes that the perspective taking, the landmark reference and the language form show the different aspects of the spatial cognition of route direction.
