Module assignments


In this seminar, a brief overview of the main classification schemes for semantic change will be presented, as well as the most important topics related to this phenomenon. Its main focus, however, will lie in understanding the intricate mechanisms causing changes in meaning in the English language, which entails working with many core linguistic concepts of the semantic field, such as metaphor and metonymy. Though not obligatory, this seminar may be very well combined with the "Übung: Semantics", the latter functioning as a reinforcement of basic semantic notions.
