  • Contrastive Lexical Semanticsby Edda Weigand

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 165.00

    Contrastive lexical semantics was the main topic of an International Workshop at the University of Münster in May, 1997. It was addressed from different perspectives, from the pragmatic perspective of a corpus-oriented approach as well as from the model-oriented perspective of sign theoretic linguistics. Whereas the rule-governed model-oriented... more...

  • Semiotic Principles in Semantic Theoryby Neal R. Norrick

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1981; US$ 165.00

    This study represents a contribution to the theory of meaning in natural language. It proposes a semantic theory containing a set of regular relational principles. These principles enable semantic theory to describe connections from the lexical reading of a word to its figurative contextual reading, from one variant reading of a polysemous lexical... more...

  • Continuity in Linguistic Semanticsby Catherine Fuchs; Bernard Victorri

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1994; US$ 165.00

    Until recently, most linguistic theories as well as theories of cognition have avoided use of the notion of continuity. At the moment, however, several linguistic trends, sharing a preoccupation with semantico-cognitive problems (e.g. cognitive grammars, 'psychomechanics', 'enunciative theories'), are trying to go beyond the constraints imposed by... more...

  • Catastrophe Theoretic Semanticsby Wolfgang Wildgen

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1982; US$ 102.00

    René Thom, the famous French mathematician and founder of catastrophe theory, considered linguistics an exemplary field for the application of his general morphology. It is surprising that physicists, chemists, biologists, psychologists and sociologists are all engaged in the field of catastrophe theory, but that there has been almost no echo from... more...

  • Explorations in Semantics and Pragmaticsby Geoffrey N. Leech

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1980; US$ 102.00

    The aim of this book is to show the way forward to a coherent view of language in which the achievement of the formalist paradigm is strengthened to the extent that its claims are weakened. A formal theory such as generative grammar is a special theory which is to be subsumed in a general theory of linguistic communication that also includes pragmatics.... more...

  • Situation et significationby Ivan Fónagy

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1982; US$ 102.00

    Ceux qui parlent une langue seconde, savent par leur propre expérience que, malgré une bonne connaissance du vocabulaire et des règles de la grammaire, ils n?arrivent pas à réagir verbalement à des situations concrètes de la même manière que ceux qui la parlent en langue maternelle. Cet ouvrage, à la fois théorique et pratique, tâche de combler ce... more...

  • Semantic Role Labelingby Martha Palmer; Daniel Gildea; Nianwen Xue

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2011; US$ 40.00

    This book is aimed at providing an overview of several aspects of semantic role labeling. Chapter 1 begins with linguistic background on the definition of semantic roles and the controversies surrounding them. Chapter 2 describes how the theories have led to structured lexicons such as FrameNet, VerbNet and the PropBank Frame Files that in turn provide... more...

  • Latent Semantic Mapping: Principles and Applicationsby Jerome R. Bellegarda

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00

    Latent semantic mapping (LSM) is a generalization of latent semantic analysis (LSA), a paradigm originally developed to capture hidden word patterns in a text document corpus. In information retrieval, LSA enables retrieval on the basis of conceptual content, instead of merely matching words between queries and documents. It operates under the assumption... more...

  • Referential-Semantic Analysisby Torben Thrane

    Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 34.00

    Dr Thrane makes an original contribution to one of the central topics in syntax and semantics: the nature and mechanisms of reference in natural language. more...

  • Cultural Semantics and Social Cognitionby Carsten Levisen

    De Gruyter Mouton 2012; US$ 140.00

    Words do not emerge in a cultural vacuum. They are revealing of speakers' values, cognitive preferences and social practices. With an engaging study of Danish cultural keywords, this book offers a new framework for understanding language-particular universes of meaning and lays the ground for comparative research into the diversity of semantic and... more...
