    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 165.00

    Testing oral proficiency is an important but challenging part of foreign language assessment: currently accepted methods are time-consuming and expensive.

However, neologisms related to semantic change are rather difficult to detect by automatic procedures, because changes in meaning... more...
