The Lexical Typology of Semantic Shifts

Edited by: Päivi Juvonen and Maria Koptjevskaja-Tamm
Now in paperback


The volume focuses on semantic shifts and motivation patterns in the lexicon. Its key feature is its lexico-typological orientation, i.e. a heavy emphasis on systematic cross-linguistic comparison. The book presents current theoretical and methodological trends in the study of semantic shifts and motivational patters based on an abundance of empirical findings across genetically, areally and typologically diverse languages.
