Abstract:

This collected volume presents radically new directions which are
emerging in cognitive lexical semantics research. A number of papers
re-ignite the polysemy vs. monosemy debate, and testify to the fact
that polysemy is no longer simply taken for granted, but is currently
a much more contested issue than it was in the 1980s and 1990s. Other
papers offer fresh perspectives on the prototype structure of lexical
categories, while generally accepted notions about the radial network
structure of categories is ques-tioned in papers on the development of
word meaning in child language acquisition and in
diachrony. Additional topics include the interaction of lexical and
constructional meaning, and the relationship between word meanings and
the contexts in which the words are encountered. This book will be of
interest to semanticists and cognitive linguists, as well as to
scholars working in the broader field of cognitive science.
