(p.333) Chapter 11 Lexical Semantics
Foundations of Language

Ray Jackendoff

This chapter discusses a potpourri of issues concerning the concepts associated with words. It addresses the issue of lexical decomposition, showing that although traditional decomposition into necessary and sufficient conditions is not viable, the evidence warrants a far richer notion of lexical decomposition.

Keywords:   decomposition, polysemy, taxonomic structure, function-argument structure, qualia structure, dot objects
