Project Details

Layman's description

In spite of its fundamental role in organizing and constraining the semantic development of languages’ vocabularies (Cruse 1986, Fellbaum 1998, Murphy 2003), little empirical research has been conducted on antonymy, either using experimental techniques or corpus-based methodologies (Muehleisen 1997, Willners 2001, Jones 2002). The aim of this project is to design and launch elicitation experiments
