Abstract

The chapter focuses on semantic extensions of the Polish ‘eye’ lexeme and its morphological diminutive using corpus and Cognitive Linguistics methodologies. It is demonstrated that each of the two lexemes can be a source domain for mapping onto a number of similar target domains. However, when frequency criteria are taken into account, the overall patterns of extensions are very different for each lexeme. This poses questions about the role of morphology in reducing polysemy of body part terms and lexicalization of certain extended senses towards higher salience and autonomy.

In this book, Martin Hilpert lays out how Construction Grammar can be applied to the study of language change. In a series of ten lectures on Diachronic Construction Grammar, the book presents the theoretical foundations, open questions, and methodological approaches that inform the constructional analysis of diachronic processes in language. The lectures address issues such as constructional networks, competition between constructions, shifts in collocational preferences, and differentiation and attraction in constructional change. The book features analyses that utilize modern corpus-linguistic methodologies and that draw on current theoretical discussions in usage-based linguistics. It is relevant for researchers and students in cognitive linguistics, corpus linguistics, and historical linguistics.
