Título:The Lexical Typology of Semantic Shifts
Autores/as:Juvonen, Päivi; Koptjevskaja-Tamm, Maria
Año de publicación:2016
Lugar de edición:Berlin
Editorial:De Gruyter Mouton

The volume focuses on semantic shifts and motivation patterns in the lexicon. Its key feature is its lexico-typological orientation, i.e. a heavy emphasis on systematic cross-linguistic comparison. The book presents current theoretical and methodological trends in the study of semantic shifts and motivational patters based on an abundance of empirical findings across genetically, areally and typologically diverse languages.
