Theories of Lexical Semantics

Dirk Geeraerts

  • Covers the period from the beginning of the 19th century up to the present day
  • Brings together the various approaches to lexical semantics in a clear and insightful architecture of affinities and dissimilarities, of theoretical tensions and descriptive elaborations
  • Reveals the underlying lines of development in what otherwise might seem a chaotic and unstructured field
  • Focuses on essential currents and undercurrents, but also provides suggestions for further reading coupled to a large reference section of 800 items
