    Sammanfattning : This work is a study of verbal semantics with a focus on the discussion and illustration of the role of body parts and the semantic incorporation into verbal roots of the actions that involve various body parts. Following a general discussion of the basic issues of language construction and human body actions with the image schemas of force-dynamics presented in line with the framework of cognitive semantics, it is argued that the event structures of physical action verbs are not arbitrarily constructed but rather the constructions are built through systematic cognitive processes in relation to both human physical reality and concrete reality in the world.

  3. 3. Antonyms in Context : A Corpus-Based Semantic Analysis of Swedish Descriptive Adjectives

    Detta är en avhandling från Linguistics and Phonetics

    Författare :Caroline Willners; [2001]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Nordiska språk språk och litteratur ; Scandinavian languages and literature; WordNet; semantic frameword; semantic network; sentential co-occurrence; semantic range; adjectives; antnoymy; lexical semantics; corpus-based methods; Lexicology; Lexikologi; Grammar; semantics; semiotics; syntax; Grammatik; semantik; semiotik;

    Sammanfattning : How are antonym relations acquired? What types of lexical information can be extracted from corpora and how? How can this information be encoded in a lexicon? The work in this book was developed within the framework of WordNet. A further elaborated lexical model is suggested, as well as methods for implementing it. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Transitivity in discourse : A comparison of Greek, Polish and Swedish

    Detta är en avhandling från Linguistics and Phonetics

    Författare :Ann Lindvall; [1998]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; agentivity; affectedness; aspect; boundedness; cognitive semantics; definiteness; discourse semantics; dynamism; functionalism; givenness; Greek; language typology; lexical semantics; modality; Modern Greek; Polish; transitivity; Swedish; translation; Linguistics; Lingvistik;

    Sammanfattning : This work assumes that various linguistic forms in different languages are related to common cognitive functions and semantic properties. A cognitive function - presumably universal - is information transmission. LÄS MER

  5. 5. En matchningsdriven semantisk modell. Mellan ordboken och den interna grammatiken A match-driven semantic model. Between the dictionary and the internal grammar

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Rudolf Rydstedt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Construction Grammar; Cognitive Grammar; semantic databases; lexical semantics; Cognitive Semantics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents Matchningsdriven semantisk modell [Match-driven Semantic Model] (MSM). The Model was developed in order to facilitate the analysis of the semantic structure of corpus data, but the central component, the inventory, is a generalized dictionary. LÄS MER
