Abstract:

"Lexical Meaning in Dialogic Language Use" addresses a number ofcentral issues in the field of lexical semantics. Starting off from anaction-theoretical view of communication meaning is defined as somethingthat 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 thelexical unit? What about the make-up of the meaning side? Does polysemyreally exist? And is encyclopaedic information to be fully integrated intothe lexicon?These questions are examined along the analyses of authenticlexical material from corpora. At the end exemplary lexical entriesrepresent both the expression and meaning side of the analyzed material,providing incentive not only for theory but also for practical applicationslike foreign language teaching, lexicography, translational studies, and soforth.

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