NEW TITLE FROM BLACKWELL PUBLISHING

Words and Phrases: Corpus Studies of Lexical Semantics
Michael Stubbs, University of Trier, Germany

This book fills a gap in studies of meaning by providing detailed case
studies of attested corpus data on the meanings of words and
phrases. It places lexis and phraseology at the centre of semantics
and pragmatics. Words and Phrases starts from traditional concepts of
lexical semantics, including meaning as use, denotation and
connotation, lexical field, sense relations, phraseology and
collocation. It also uses innovative corpus data to explore these
concepts with an exciting new technology. The main chapters are
detailed case studies of words in collocations, words in texts and
words in culture. Concluding chapters discuss the implications of
corpus analysis for linguistic theory, especially lexico-grammar and
theories of competence and performance.
