Questions about the exact nature of linguistic as opposed to non-linguistic
knowledge have been asked for as long as humans have studied language, be it
as linguists, philosophers, psychologists, language teachers, semioticians
or cognitive scientists. This distinction has been maintained and defended
by some, attacked and abandoned by others. Through specially commissioned
papers for this, the fifth volume in the CRiSPI series, contributors argue
both for and against the distinction between lexical knowledge and
encyclopedic knowledge and debate how it should be drawn.


Interdisciplinary, but particularly recommended for linguists involved in
lexical semantics.

'A trenchant discussion of what is now felt as one of the most exciting
 problems of natural language semantics and pragmatics, namely the
 possibility of separating questions of meaning from questions of factual
 knowledge.' Jaroslav Peregrin, Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic
