Abstract:

This book explores the key mechanisms underlying semantic change. Meaning
changes work, the author shows, through modes of reanalysis undertaken by
speakers and listeners, and are particularly evident in processes of
grammaticalization in which lexical items lose autonomous meaning. Regine
Eckardt's approach is derived from formal semantic theory and developed in
the context of several in-depth case studies. Her book will interest
scholars and advanced students of historical and comparative linguistics
and formal semantics.
