Regularity in Semantic Change

Elizabeth Close Traugott, Stanford University, CA
Richard B. Dasher, Stanford University, CA

This new and important study of semantic change examines the various ways
in which new meanings arise through language use, especially the ways in which
speakers and writers experiment with uses of words and constructions.
Drawing on extensive research from over a thousand years of English and
Japanese textual history, Traugott and Dasher show that most changes in
meaning originate in and are motivated by the associative flow of speech
and conceptual metonymy.


Contents:
1. The framework; 2. Prior and current work on semantic change; 3. The
development of modal verbs; 4. The development of adverbials with discourse
marker function; 5. The development of performative verbs and
constructions; 6. The development of social deictics; 7. Conclusion.
