Most of the books approximately computational (lexical) semantic lexicons take care of the intensity (or content material) point of lexicons, ignoring the breadth (or insurance) element. This e-book offers a primary try locally to deal with either concerns: content material and insurance of computational semantic lexicons, in a radical demeanour. furthermore, it addresses concerns that have no longer but been tackled in carried out platforms comparable to the appliance time of lexical principles. Lexical ideas and lexical underspecification also are contrasted in carried out structures. the most techniques within the box of computational (lexical) semantics are represented within the current ebook (including Wordnet, CyC, Mikrokosmos, Generative Lexicon).
This e-book embraces numerous fields (and subfields) as various as: linguistics (theoretical, computational, semantics, pragmatics), psycholinguistics, cognitive technological know-how, laptop technology, synthetic intelligence, wisdom illustration, information and average language processing. The e-book additionally constitutes a superb advent to the state-of-the-art in computational semantic lexicons of the overdue 1990s.

3). Here, I have in mind such common nouns as kleenex, band-aid, hoover, and xerox, which clearly derive from proper names. Such lexicalizations require lexical entries of their own. In short, to accommodate the nonce usage of proper names as common nouns, conversion rules, with concomitant semantics, are required; and, to accommodate the fact that, of these nonce usages of proper names as common nouns, some become lexicalized, requires that these lexicalized usages be given special lexical entries.

How much floor did you lay today? It is interesting to note in this regard the use of common nouns for legumes as mass nouns by American farmers in the context of planting. 5 Finally, there are many cases where the shift in meaning is almost imperceptible. These are words which were mentioned earlier: stone, rock, ash, string, cord, rope, and tile. What is it that differentiates their mass from their count uses? It is nothing more than whether or not the denotation must be atomic. 6 Here again, the question arises: is the range of type of denotation a result of indeterminacy (or underspecification), or is it a result of ambiguity?
