Measurements of grammaticalization : developing a quantitative index for the study of grammatical change

Correia Saavedra, David ; Hilpert, Martin (Dir.) ; Petré, Peter (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Il existe un large consensus sur le fait que la grammaticalisation est un processus graduel et largement unidirectionnel : les éléments lexicaux acquièrent des fonctions grammaticales et les éléments grammaticaux peuvent ensuite se grammaticaliser d’avantage (Hopper et Traugott 2003). Ce consensus est fondé sur des observations consistantes entre plusieurs langues. Alors que la plupart...

Meaning change in a petri dish: constructions, semantic vector spaces, and motion charts

Hilpert, Martin ; Perek, Florent

In: Linguistics Vanguard, 2015, vol. 1, no. 1, p. 339-350

This paper explores how the visualization tool of motion charts can be used for the analysis of meaning change in linguistic constructions. In previous work, linguistic motion charts have been used to represent diachronic frequency trends and changes in the morphosyntactic behavior of linguistic units. The present paper builds on that work, but it shifts the focus to the study of semantic change....

Using token-based semantic vector spaces for corpus-linguistic analyses: From practical applications to tests of theoretical claims

Hilpert, Martin ; Correia Saavedra, David

In: Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory, 2017, p. 1-32

This paper presents token-based semantic vector spaces as a tool that can be applied in corpus-linguistic analyses such as word sense comparisons, comparisons of synonymous lexical items, and matching of concordance lines with a given text. We demonstrate how token-based semantic vector spaces are created, and we illustrate the kinds of result that can be obtained with this approach. Our main...
