Lexical semantics

When I studied abroad in Northern Ireland, we discussed the notion of manner and result in the roots of verbal meaning. See below for one of my favorite linguistics quotes.

Consider an example where a zombie has died and been reanimated, and John drowns him.

– John Beavers

If this sounds intriguing, our presentation slides may or may not help clarify what we were talking about.


Til next time,
