This chapter presents a Cognitive Semantics framework for the analysis of words and meaning-making in language, Lexical Meaning as Ontologies and Construals, and the basic socio-sensory-cognitive assumptions on which this framework rests. It demonstrates the repercussions of the basic assumptions of the approach to word meaning, highlighting its usefulness for describing and explaining mean-ing-making in communication. Special attention is given to word classes, degree, antonymy, metonymization and metaphorization.
