The Meaning Text Theory (MTT) is a lexicon-centred and dependency-basedtheory for the description of language using a holistic model thatincorporates semantics, syntax, morphology and lexis. This volume,prepared on the occasion of Igor Mel'čuk's 70th birthday, offers a cross-section of the current advances in MTT and its applications. The first part ofthe book focuses on lexical phenomena that are still largely neglected inmainstream linguistics: sound symbolism as manifested by ideophones, andidiosyncratic lexical relations as manifested by (LFs). In particular, LFsare addressed from different angles (including the introduction of new'standard' LFs, the argument structure and semantic decomposition oflexical relations captured by LFs, automatic recognition of LF-instances incorpora, and the use of LFs in terminology and natural languageprocessing). The second part of the book deals with such prominentmodel-oriented issues as semantic paraphrasing in MTT, the role of phrasestructure in MTT and syntactic analysis within MTT.
