Comprises many of the papers given at a world workshop on the collage of Munster in may well 1997. The textual content addresses questions of lexical semantics from the pragmatic point of view of a corpus-oriented strategy in addition to from the model-oriented viewpoint of signal theoretic linguistics. in the corpus-oriented process, the concept that unmarried phrases can not be thought of to be the lexical unit is mentioned. different versions of contrastive lexical semantics also are lined: the two-level version; the structural version; a version of contrastive idiom research; and a computerlinguistic version.

It becomes possible to start from universal semantics and to construct utterances of individual languages out of ways-ofuse. The model can be called a cognitively based theory of use which relates cognition to use. 6. The principle of meaning equivalence As we know, formal and semantic structure are not directly correlated; each of them has its own principles that do not fit 1:1. Starting from ways-ofuse, we have to look for a principle of correlation between universal struc­ ture and ways-of-use that allows us to give semantics and the expression side their own respective structures.
