  Abstract:  
Space/Motion/Time mappings in the representation of future time in English: the role of context. This paper addresses the expression of future time in English as related to a Conceptual Metaphor, THE FUTURE IS AHEAD, a construal lexicalized in numerous common utterances like a bright future ahead of her, or the future ahead of me. It is argued that Time is conceptualized as a complex metaphorical network whose SPACE/MOTION/TIME mappings are regulated by the subject╩╝s context-dependent perception of the temporal situation.

Keywords: Space/Motion/Time construals, Future, Conceptual Metaphor, Context, English
