Change in Meaning and the Meaning of Change. Studies in Semantics and Grammar from Old to Present-Day English
Edited by Matti Rissanen & al.
Modern Language Society
Mémoires de la Société Néophilologique de Helsinki 72
Vaajakoski 2007, xvii + 377 pp.
The twelve articles of the present volume are grouped under two headings: 'Meaning and mind' and 'Meaning and grammar'. The studies in the first part mainly deal with cognitive semantics, and those in the second part with various types of reanalysis and grammaticalisation. Special attention is paid to language in use as a means of communication, and to change through variation. The articles make ample use of English corpora from Old to Present-Day English.
