Contrastive Lexical Semantics

Contrastive lexical semantics was the main topic of an International Workshop at the University of MA¼nster 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 approach is necessarily restricted to subsets of vocabulary, the pragmatic approach aims to analyse and describe the whole vocabulary-in-use. After the pragmatic turn, lexical semantics can no longer be seen as a discipline on its own but has to be developed as an integral part of a theory of language use. Essential features of individual languages can be discovered only by looking beyond the limits of our mother languages and including a contrastive perspective. Within a pragmatic, corpus-oriented approach essential new ideas are discussed, mainly the insight that single words can no longer be considered to be the lexical unit. It is the complex multi-word lexical unit a pragmatic approach has to deal with.... 91 a€”agt; corpus - korpusbasiert 91 - Korpuslinguistik 80 L lambda-categorial 214 language use 25 learnera#39;s dictionary 120, 124, 126, ... unit viii, 1, 34, 184 a€”agt; lexikalische Einheit lexicon 3 a€”agt; Lexikon Lexikographie 69, 75 Lexikon 108 a€”agt; lexicon - lexikalische Einheit 91 ... 251 -agt; dictionary - machine translation 244 manual tagging 244 a€”agt; tagging mass noun 211, 224 mass-template 215 maximumanbsp;...
