Review of From Polysemy to Semantic Change: Towards a Typology of Lexical Semantic Associations

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This volume is introduced in the foreword (vii) as the product of a project begun in 2002 at the Fédération de Recherche Typologie et Universaux Linguistiques of the French National Centre for Scientific Research. It consists of three parts: ‘State of the art’ (one chapter), ‘Theoretical and methodological issues’ (seven chapters), and ‘Case studies’ (six chapters). I focus here mainly on the first two parts where the more substantive theoretical issues are raised, without intending to diminish the value of the case studies.
