What is POLYSEMY? What does POLYSEMY mean? POLYSEMY meaning - POLYSEMY pronunciation - POLYSEMY definition - POLYSEMY explanation - How to pronounce POLYSEMY? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Polysemy is the capacity for a sign (such as a word, phrase, or symbol) to have multiple meanings (that is, multiple semes or sememes and thus multiple senses), usually related by contiguity of meaning within a semantic field. It is thus usually regarded as distinct from homonymy, in which the multiple meanings of a word may be unconnected or unrelated. Charles Fillmore and Beryl Atkins' definition stipulates three elements: (i) the various senses of a polysemous word have a central origin, (ii) the links between these senses form a network, and (iii) understanding the 'inner' one contributes to understanding of the 'outer' one. Polysemy is a pivotal concept within disciplines such as media studies and linguistics. The analysis of polysemy, synonymy, and hyponymy and hypernymy is vital to taxonomy and ontology in the information-science senses of those terms. It has applications in pedagogy and machine learning, because they rely on word-sense disambiguation and schemas. A polyseme is a word or phrase with different, but related senses. Since the test for polysemy is the vague concept of relatedness, judgments of polysemy can be difficult to make. Because applying pre-existing words to new situations is a natural process of language change, looking at words' etymology is helpful in determining polysemy but not the only solution; as words become lost in etymology, what once was a useful distinction of meaning may no longer be so. Some apparently unrelated words share a common historical origin, however, so etymology is not an infallible test for polysemy, and dictionary writers also often defer to speakers' intuitions to judge polysemy in cases where it contradicts etymology. English has many words which are polysemous. For example, the verb "to get" can mean "procure" (I'll get the drinks), "become" (she got scared), "understand" (I get it) etc. In vertical polysemy a word refers to a member of a subcategory (e.g., 'dog' for 'male dog'). A closely related idea is metonymy, in which a word with one original meaning is used to refer to something else connected to it. There are several tests for polysemy, but one of them is zeugma: if one word seems to exhibit zeugma when applied in different contexts, it is likely that the contexts bring out different polysemes of the same word. If the two senses of the same word do not seem to fit, yet seem related, then it is likely that they are polysemous. The fact that this test again depends on speakers' judgments about relatedness, however, means that this test for polysemy is not infallible, but is rather merely a helpful conceptual aid. The difference between homonyms and polysemes is subtle. Lexicographers define polysemes within a single dictionary lemma, numbering different meanings, while homonyms are treated in separate lemmata. Semantic shift can separate a polysemous word into separate homonyms. For example, check as in "bank check" (or Cheque), check in chess, and check meaning "verification" are considered homonyms, while they originated as a single word derived from chess in the 14th century. Psycholinguistic experiments have shown that homonyms and polysemes are represented differently within people's mental lexicon: while the different meanings of homonyms (which are semantically unrelated) tend to interfere or compete with each other during comprehension, this does not usually occur for the polysemes that have semantically related meanings. Results for this contention, however, have been mixed. For Dick Hebdige polysemy means that, "each text is seen to generate a potentially infinite range of meanings," making, according to Richard Middleton, "any homology, out of the most heterogeneous materials, possible. The idea of signifying practice—texts not as communicating or expressing a pre-existing meaning but as 'positioning subjects' within a process of semiosis—changes the whole basis of creating social meaning".

Why we use cartoon characters and animation? We use as tuning in to engage and interest students. The music video after Polysemy Part 1 is to entertain students with lively and catchy music that is highly popular among children. The characters of Madagascar are incorporated because students are very familiar with the movie Madagascar, and it is very popular among children. Hence, it is used to capture their attention at the start of the video through colourful animation and sounds We used polysemous words involving body parts for students to easily make connections and relate examples to them so that they can understand better. Body parts are familiar words which students have prior knowledge on, hence we will use this to built on and introduce the concept of polysemy. 2. Structure of Lesson a. Intro We explain the concept of polysemy at the start of the lesson by giving them an example of a passage with polysemous words. b. Development We used repeated slide number, to reinforce understanding of the concept of polysemy and how words are related in meaning by the structure, function and location. 3. Conclusion Simple MCQ questions are given to assess students understanding of the main concept of polysemy. The extension activity is a higher-order activity to stretch students ability and if the video is used in class, teachers or even parents can check their understanding through the students' usage of the chosen polysemous word.

EXAMPLES: A word such as "head" is a polysemous word as it can be: 1. The part of body 2. Head of a company 3. The starting point of a river Foot can be 1. Part of body 2. Foot of mountain DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POLYSEMY AND HOMONYMY: While words like bank have two unrelated meanings these are homonyms whereas in polysemy words have related more than one meanings. DISTRIBUTION IN DICTIONARY: In some dictionaries homonyms are given in different entities whereas polysemous are given under a single entry. Look up in Oxford, Cambridge, Longman etc. WORDS MAY TREAT AS HOMONYMS AND POLYSEMOUS: Words like "date" are homonyms when the difference is following: 1. Date is a fruit 2. Date is a point of time. While it is polysemous in "point of time" 1. A particular day 2. A meeting on a particular day. 3. A social meeting on a day.

A course in Cognitive Linguistics: Polysemy
 
40:49
This is the fourth episode of a course in Cognitive Linguistics. This episode addresses the topic of polysemy, which describes the phenomenon that a single linguistic form maps onto several related meanings. I contrast polysemy with homonomy and vagueness, and I go over some psycholinguistic and corpus-based work that investigates the semantic structure of polysemous meaning networks.

What is COMPONENTIAL ANALYSIS? What does COMPONENTIAL ANALYSIS mean? COMPONENTIAL ANALYSIS meaning - COMPONENTIAL ANALYSIS definition - COMPONENTIAL ANALYSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Componential analysis (feature analysis or contrast analysis) is the analysis of words through structured sets of semantic features, which are given as “present”, “absent” or “indifferent with reference to feature”. The method thus departs from the principle of compositionality. Componential analysis is a method typical of structural semantics which analyzes the components of a word's meaning. Thus, it reveals the culturally important features by which speakers of the language distinguish different words in a semantic field or domain (Ottenheimer, 2006, p. 20). This is a highly valuable approach to learning another language and understanding a specific semantic domain of an Ethnography. Structural semantics and the componential analysis were patterned on the phonological methods of the Prague School, which described sounds by determining the absence and presence of features. On one hand, componential analysis gave birth to various models in generative semantics, lexical field theory and transformational grammar. On the other hand, its shortcoming were also visible: The discovery procedures for semantic features are not clearly objectifiable. Only part of the vocabulary can be described through more or less structured sets of features. Metalinguistic features are expressed through language again. Features used may not have clear definitions. Limited in focus and mechanical in style. As a consequence, entirely different ways to describe meaning were developed, such as prototype semantics.

One group of polysemes are those in which a word meaning an activity, perhaps derived from a verb, acquires the meanings of those engaged in the activity, or perhaps the results of the activity, or the time or place in which the activity occurs or has occurred. Sometimes only one of those meanings is intended, depending on context, and sometimes multiple meanings are intended at the same time. Other types are derivations from one of the other meanings that leads to a verb or activity.

What is HETEROSEMY? What does HETEROSEMY mean? HETEROSEMY meaning - HETEROSEMY pronunciation - HETEROSEMY definition - HETEROSEMY explanation - How to pronounce HETEROSEMY? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Heterosemy is a concept in linguistics. A word is heterosemous if it has two or more semantically related meanings, each of which is associated with a different type of morphosyntactic category. An example is the English word peel which functions as a noun in the sentence I threw the orange peel in the bin, but as a verb in Would you peel the orange for me?. Heterosemy can be seen as a special case of polysemy, with the difference that in polysemy, the related meanings of a form is associated with the same lexeme. For example, the word hard has the related meanings "solid" (as in a hard surface) and "difficult" (as in a hard question), but since the word is used as an adjective in both cases, it is straightforwardly classified as an instance of polysemy. On the other hand, the two uses of peel are associated with two different lexemes, one being a noun and the other a verb. Linguists have been unwilling to apply the label polysemy to such cases since polysemy is traditionally considered to be a relation between different uses of the same lexeme, and thus not applicable to words belonging to different categories. The term heterosemy was first introduced by Gunnar Persson, but is usually associated with the work of Frantisek Lichtenberk.

Daniel talked about the use of corpora in language teaching and showed that language databases such as the British National Corpus let us discover not only the most popular words in English, but also "hidden" meanings or functions of many other words. He also showed that wordlists often reveal cultural and social patterns, and that the grammar explained in grammar books does not always reflect the real-life use of the language.

Normally, comic effects are created intentionally but ambiguity is itself sometimes remains in language. EXAMPLES: 1. Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9. Here the word 8 is considered as "ate," therefore 6 is afraid of 7. So, here this is a comic effect. 2. I am going to the bank. Now, here the bank is either of the river or the financial institute. The bank is a homonym, which have more than one interpretations which is creating ambiguity in this sentence.

What is LEXICAL SEMANTICS? What does LEXICAL SEMANTICS mean? LEXICAL SEMANTICS meaning - LEXICAL SEMANTICS definition - LEXICAL SEMANTICS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Lexical semantics (also known as lexicosemantics), is a subfield of linguistic semantics. The units of analysis in lexical semantics are lexical units which include not only words but also sub-words or sub-units such as affixes and even compound words and phrases. Lexical units make up the catalogue of words in a language, the lexicon. Lexical semantics looks at how the meaning of the lexical units correlates with the structure of the language or syntax. This is referred to as syntax-semantic interface. The study of lexical semantics looks at: - the classification and decomposition of lexical items, - the differences and similarities in lexical semantic structure cross-linguistically, - the relationship of lexical meaning to sentence meaning and syntax. Lexical units, also referred to as syntactic atoms, can stand alone such as in the case of root words or parts of compound words or they necessarily attach to other units such as prefixes and suffixes do. The former are called free morphemes and the latter bound morphemes. They fall into a narrow range of meanings (semantic fields) and can combine with each other to generate new meanings. Lexical items contain information about category (lexical and syntactic), form and meaning. The semantics related to these categories then relate to each lexical item in the lexicon. Lexical items can also be semantically classified based on whether their meanings are derived from single lexical units or from their surrounding environment. Lexical items participate in regular patterns of association with each other. Some relations between lexical items include hyponymy, hypernymy, synonymy and antonymy, as well as homonymy.

What is SEMASIOLOGY? What does SEMASIOLOGY mean? SEMASIOLOGY meaning - SEMASIOLOGY pronunciation - SEMASIOLOGY definition - SEMASIOLOGY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Semasiology (from Greek: semasia "signification, meaning") is a discipline within linguistics concerned with the question "what does the word X mean?". It studies the meaning of words regardless of their phonetic expression. Semasiology departs from a word or lexical expression and asks for its meaning, its different senses, i.e. polysemy. The opposite approach is known as onomasiology. The term was first used by Christian Karl Reisig in 1825 in his Vorlesungen über lateinische Sprachwissenschaft (E. Lectures on Latin Linguistics) and was in use in English by 1847. Semantics replaced it in its original meaning, beginning in 1893. Currently, the discipline is most commonly understood as a branch of lexicology, the study of words, and as a branch of semantics, and more narrowly ascribed as a subfield of lexical semantics, though sometimes referred to as a synonym of semantics. The exact meaning of the term is somewhat obscure, because according to some authors semasiology merged with semantics in modern times, while at the same time the term is still in use when defining onomasiology.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Semantic features represent the basic conceptual components of meaning for any lexical item. An individual semantic feature constitutes one component of a word's intension, which is the inherent sense or concept evoked. Linguistic meaning of a word is proposed to arise from contrasts and significant differences with other words. Semantic features enable linguistics to explain how words that share certain features may be members of the same semantic domain. Correspondingly, the contrast in meanings of words is explained by diverging semantic features. For example, father and son share the common components of 'human', 'kinship', 'male' and are thus part of a semantic domain of male family relations. They differ in terms of 'generation' and 'adulthood', which is what gives each its individual meaning. The analysis of semantic features is utilized in the field of linguistic semantics, more specifically the subfields of lexical semantics, and lexicology. One aim of these subfields is to explain the meaning of a word in terms of their relationships with other words. In order to accomplish this aim, one approach is to analyze the internal semantic structure of a word as composed of a number of distinct and minimal components of meaning. This approach is called componential analysis, also known as semantic decomposition. Semantic decomposition allows any given lexical item to be defined based on minimal elements of meaning, which are called semantic features. The term semantic feature is usually used interchangeably with the term semantic component. Additionally, semantic features/semantic components are also often referred to as semantic properties. The theory of componential analysis and semantic features is not the only approach to analyzing the semantic structure of words. An alternative direction of research that contrasts with componential analysis is prototype semantics.

CARTA: How Language Evolves: Mark Aronoff: Co-emergence of Meaning and Structure in a New Language
 
21:31
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) Mark Aronoff focuses on the emergence of words and lexical categories in new sign languages in this talk. Using naming experiments with groups of non-signing gesturers and signers of new languages, his research team has shown how all groups consistently distinguish between names and actions. They have also shown that emerging lexical distinctions are both cognitive and communicative in nature. They constitute common categories found in languages because they reflect the shared ways that humans interact with the world, involving self, other and mediating tools. Recorded on 2/20/2015.
