Title: Lexical Meaning in Dialogic Language Use
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DS%209
Series Title: Dialogue Studies 9
Description:

"Lexical Meaning in Dialogic Language Use" addresses a number of
central issues in the field of lexical semantics. Starting off from an
action-theoretical view of communication meaning is defined as something
that speakers do in dialogic language use. Meaning as ‘meaning-in-use’
opens up a new perspective on a number of aspects: how can we define the
lexical unit? What about the make-up of the meaning side? Does polysemy
really exist? And is encyclopaedic information to be fully integrated into
the lexicon?These questions are examined along the analyses of authentic
lexical material from corpora. At the end exemplary lexical entries
represent both the expression and meaning side of the analyzed material,
providing incentive not only for theory but also for practical applications
like foreign language teaching, lexicography, translational studies, and so
forth.

This book will appeal to anyone interested in language use and meaning and
understanding especially.
