Description
The development of modern English vocabulary stems from a number of sources. Words were formed by "borrowing" from other languages, by altering the structure of existing words, and by combining old words to form new ones. Words, Meaning, and Vocabulary examines how the modern English lexicon grew over time and what constitutes the words within it. The authors delve into questions such as why some words look and sound alike, and why others have more than one meaning. This important resource also contains concise chapter summaries and an extensive resource of online, text, and international materials devoted to the study of lexicography and lexicology.
