The latter is considered from the position of deixis and ecological perception, relying on the deictic act of mental pointing to elements that are eligible for deliberate attention as well as on the ecological principles of event perception and cognitive economy. It is possible, further, to conceive of pointing as an internal construction of an external operation, and to consider pointing as a predication process which can be applied to focal points as well as to events with at least some extension through time. ...
