    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    This collection of papers takes linguists to the leading edge of techniques in generative lexicon theory, the linguistic composition methodology that arose from the imperative to provide a compositional semantics for the contextual modifications in meaning that emerge in real linguistic usage.

    De Gruyter Mouton 2006; US$ 196.00

    The book investigates the interface structure of the lexicon from various perspectives, including typology and processing. It surveys work on verb classes, verb-noun similarities, semantic representations, concepts and constructions of polysynthetic languages, research on the processing of inflectional and derivational elements, and new work on inheritance-based... more...

  • Conceptual Structure in Lexical Itemsby Kristel Proost

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    This volume deals with the occurrence of lexical gaps in the domain of linguistic action verbs. Though these constitute a considerable proportion of the verb inventory of many languages, not all concepts of verbal communication may be expressed by lexical items in any particular one of them. Introducing a conceptual system which allows gaps to be searched... more...

  • Diachronic Studies in Lexicology, Affixation, Phonologyby Yakov Malkiel

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1992; US$ 180.00

    The ten articles collected in this volume are an impressive indication of the range and depth of Malkiel's knowledge of diachronic processes in the Romance languages. In the author's experience, etymological studies of lexis frequently lead one into the areas of phonology and morphology, and the title of the book reflects these interrelationships.... more...

  • Dynamics and Terminologyby Rita Temmerman; Marc Van Campenhoudt

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00

    La dynamique terminologique s’intéresse à l’évolution des termes. Complémentaire, la terminométrie offre une mesure de cette mutation. Par une étude de l’usage en diachronie courte (deux années consécutives) dans un domaine de spécialité, la nanotechnologie, il est démontré... more...

  • Grammars for Language and Genesby David Chiang; Aravind K. Joshi

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Grammars are gaining importance in natural language processing and computational biology as a means of encoding theories and structuring algorithms. But one serious obstacle to applications of grammars is that formal language theory traditionally classifies grammars according to their weak generative capacity (what sets of strings they generate) and... more...

  • Idiome, Konstruktionen, "verblümte rede"by Michael Prinz; Ulrike Richter-Vapaatalo

    S. Hirzel Verlag 2014; US$ 60.19

    <P>Die Erforschung fester Wortverbindungen begann bereits lange vor der Entstehung einer linguistischen Teildisziplin "Phraseologie". Der vorliegende Band würdigt deshalb in einem weitgespannten Bogen vom 17.&nbsp;Jahrhundert bis zur Gegenwart die Vor- und Fachgeschichte der germanistischen Phraseologieforschung. Das forschungsgeschichtliche... more...

  • Idiomsby Martin Everaert; Erik-Jan van der Linden; Andr? Schenk; Rob Schreuder; Robert Schreuder

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 120.00

    Idioms have always aroused the curiosity of linguists and there is a long tradition in the study of idioms, especially within the fields of lexicology and lexicography. Without denying the importance of this tradition, this volume presents an overview of recent idiom research outside the immediate domain of lexicology/lexicography. The chapters address... more...
