In recent decades, the field of lexical semantics has seen a shift from structural (language-immanent) analyses to a more cognitive approach that focuses on the interplay between the extralinguistic world and its mental and linguistic mapping. The field has also changed from a rather synchronic theoretical framework to a diachronic and variationist perspective that demands still further theoretical understanding. Furthermore, anti-semantic theories of syntax and even morphology have been abandoned in favor of a semantic understanding of functional units (the processes of grammaticalization; mood not only marked by, but expressed through meaningful morphemes, etc.). Lexical semantics, as it turns out, is a field rather open to research of both lexicon and grammar. Moreover, disciplines such as terminology have tried to integrate semantic theory. Defying linguistic theory, the conflicts between semantic and pragmatic approaches still dominate the field. Traditionally, lexical semantics, and semantics in general, have played only a minor role in Hispanic linguistics. We intend this panel to serve as a platform for discussions on the current state of the research and new perspectives with regard to Spanish linguistic studies.
