The BSL verb MOVE for example can be used to indicate where something is moved from, and where it is moved to, using locations in space which correspond to real locations in the world. In this use of space it would not be possible to arbitrarily employ locations to the left or the right of the signer, the locations employed must stand in the same spatial relation to each other as the real world locations which they represent. The former, arbitrary, use of space has come to be known as 'syntactic' space, the latter, involving the mapping of real locations, as 'topographic' space (Padden, 1990; Bellugi & Klima, 1993).
