Frame-shifting is semantic reanalysis in which existing elements in the contextual representation are reorganized into a new frame. Conceptual blending is a set of cognitive operations for combining partial cognitive models/5(2). Introduction. Semantic change is the subfield of historical linguistics that investigates changes in sense. In , the German philosopher Gottlob Frege argued that, although they refer to the same person, Jocasta and Oedipus’s mother, are not equivalent because they cannot be substituted for each other in some contexts; they have different “senses” or “values.”.
Get this from a library! Semantic leaps: frame-shifting and conceptual blending in meaning construction. [Seana Coulson] -- This volume explores how people combine knowledge from different domains in order to understand and express new ideas. The book concentrates on dynamic aspects of on-line meaning construction, and. Aims of this book. In this book we show that there are predictable paths for semantic change across different conceptual structures and domains of language function. Most especially we will show that, despite century-old taxonomies that suggest that meaning changes are bidirectional, e.g. generalization and narrowing, metaphor and metonymy.

Frame-shifting is semantic reanalysis in which existing elements in the contextual representation are reorganized into a new frame. Conceptual blending is a set of cognitive operations for combining partial cognitive by: In the proposed model, semantic change is perceived as an unconscious act of creation resulting from the basic mental mechanism of putting From semantic change to conceptual blending book things together, otherwise referred to as conceptual by: 2.
The purpose of the paper is to present a new approach to semantic change where meaning alteration is perceived as a by-product of conceptual blending processes and diachronic structures are argued to possess the same characteristics as their synchronic counterparts.
What is the nature of semantic change, and - more importantly - can we generalize about different instantiations of semantic change not only within individual languages but also cross-linguistically.

Conceptual Blending Conceptual blending, often dubbed conceptual integration, is usually viewed as a 'blend' of two or more diverse entities or elements cognitively ammalgamated on a sub-conscious level, eventually leading to creative and innovative thinking, without specify-ing the input sources of the blending Size: KB.
"Similarly to conceptual metaphor theory, blending theory elucidates structural and regular principles of human cognition as well as pragmatic phenomena.
However, there are also some noteworthy differences between the two theories. While blending theory has always been more oriented toward real-life examples, conceptual metaphor theory had to come of age before it was put to the Author: Richard Nordquist.

The process of conceptual blending involves a network of mental spaces, in which semantic content is transferred in various direction. Mental space (Fauconnier’s term) is “a partial and temporary representational structure which speakers construct when thinking or talking about perceived, imagined, past, present or future situation.

Drawing on extensive corpus data from over a thousand years of English and Japanese textual history, Traugott and Dasher show that most changes in meaning originate in and are motivated by the associative flow of speech Cited by: 1.

Beginning with a brief introduction to the theory, we proceed by analyzing examples of metaphor, fictive motion, and virtual change to reveal various processes of meaning construction at work in a range of examples that vary in their by: In semantics and historical linguistics, semantic change refers to any change in the meaning(s) of a word over the course of called semantic shift, lexical change, and semantic progression.
Common types of semantic change include amelioration, pejoration, broadening, semantic narrowing, bleaching, metaphor, and : Richard Nordquist. In psychology, Conceptual blending, also called conceptual integration or view application, is a theory of cognition developed by Gilles Fauconnier and Mark ing to this theory, elements and vital relations from diverse scenarios are "blended" in a subconscious process, which is assumed to be ubiquitous to everyday thought and language.
Conceptual blending is an emerging field of. Conceptual blending and mental space theory Conceptual blending theory offers a general model of meaning construction in which a small set of partially compositional processes operate in analogy, metaphor, counter-factuals, and many other semantic and pragmatic phenomena (Coulson and Oakley, ; Fauconnier and Turner, ).
