Abstract:

This book explores how some word meanings are paradigmatically related
to each other, for example, as opposites or synonyms, and how they
relate to the mental organization of our vocabularies. Traditional
approaches claim that such relationships are part of our lexical
knowledge (our "dictionary" of mentally stored words) but Lynne Murphy
argues that lexical relationships actually constitute our
"metalinguistic" knowledge. The book draws on a century of previous
research, including word association experiments, child language, and
the use of synonyms and antonyms in text.
