Title: Current Methods in Historical Semantics
Edited By: Kathryn Louise Allan
Justyna A. Robinson
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/174226?format=G&rskey=HZwpHO&result=1
Series Title: Topics in English Linguistics [TiEL] 73
Description:

Innovative, data-driven methods provide more rigorous and systematic evidence
for the description and explanation of diachronic semantic processes. The
volume systematises, reviews, and promotes a range of empirical research
techniques and theoretical perspectives that currently inform work across the
discipline of historical semantics. In addition to emphasising the use of new
technology, the potential of current theoretical models (e.g. within variationist,
sociolinguistic or cognitive frameworks) is explored along the way.
