Lexical Analysis

Patrick Hanks

The MIT Press

This book has explored how people use words to make meanings, and has proposed a new approach to analyzing and representing the lexicon of a language that involves identifying salient collocations and phraseology. It has shown how words can be used to communicate in a foreign language without syntax, and discussed the exploitation of regular patterns of word use as one of the design features of natural language. The book has discussed the theory of norms and exploitations in relation to lexicography and corpus linguistics, practical applications of linguistic theory, and word meaning in the context of the Semantic Web, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence. Finally, it has looked at language learning, language teaching, computational lexicography, and historical pattern dictionaries.

Keywords:   lexicon, collocations, phraseology, word use, natural language, theory of norms, lexicography, corpus linguistics, linguistic theory, word meaning
