This volume contains 18 papers selected from the 2005 Symposium on New Approaches in English Historical Lexis (HEL-LEX), which was held in Helsinki in 2005. The papers eventually read at the symposium, a majority of which appear here, were a combination of many interests, from Old and Middle English to issues in cognitive semantics and problems of lexicographical practice. The plenary papers by Gabriele Stein and Ian Lancashire deal at length with neglected 16th century lexicographers, Richard Howlet (Huloet) and John Rastell. The plenary paper by Zoltán Kövecses offers a broad account of theoretical issues in cognitive semantics which relate to metaphor and words for emotion. The complete table of contents showing the broad range of papers is available at http://www.lingref.com/cpp/hel-lex/2005/index.html along with abstracts and the complete papers in PDF format.
This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, an imprint of Cascadilla Press. Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings Project are published in library binding. There is also free web access to all of the papers in the proceedings through our web site at lingref.com.
