Abstract:

"Theories of Lexical Semantics" offers a comprehensive overview of the
major traditions of word meaning research in linguistics. In spite of the
growing importance of the lexicon in linguistic theory, no overview of the
main theoretical trends in lexical semantics is currently available. This
book fills that gap by charting the evolution of the discipline from the
mid nineteenth century to the present day. It presents the main ideas, the
landmark publications, and the dominant figures of five traditions:
historical-philological semantics, structuralist semantics, generativist
semantics, neostructuralist semantics, and cognitive semantics. The
theoretical and methodological relationship between the approaches is a
major point of attention throughout the text: going well beyond a mere
chronological enumeration, the book does not only describe the theoretical
currents of lexical semantics, but also the undercurrents that have shaped
its evolution.
