Lexical-Semantic Relations: A Comparative Survey. Current Inquiry into Language and Linguistics 34.
Evens, Martha W.; And Others
The relationship between meaning and vocabulary in four professions--anthropology, linguistics, psychology, and computer science--is examined. Current relational theories within each profession are compared with respect to goals, methodologies, and proposed relations. Certain core relations appear in each discipline, and these are tabulated and discussed. Several additional relations, which seem significant because of their frequency across disciplines or their centrality in an author's work, are described briefly. Underlying models of the lexicon are examined in an effort to address many of the conflicts about relations. The concluding chapter presents a brief summary of the place of relational models in the various disciplines and raises some unanswered questions. (Author/JB)
