Polysemy definition, a condition in which a single word, phrase, or concept has more than one meaning or connotation. See more. Search Tips. Phrase Searching You can use double quotes to search for a series of words in a particular order. For example, "World war II" (with quotes) will give more precise results than World war II (without quotes). Wildcard Searching If you want to search for multiple variations of a word, you can substitute a special symbol (called a "wildcard") for one or more letters. Planned direct comparisons of the main effects of Homonymy and of Polysemy yielded significant results on paired t tests (Polysemy: t(23) = , P Cited by: M. Gronas, A. Rumshisky, A. Gabrovski, S.

In this work we study the phenomenon of verbal polysemy which poses a big challenge in the domain of automatic treatment of languages. This verbal polysemy constitutes not only a constraint to the automatic linguistic recognition, but also a hurdle in the French-Arabic automatic translation, especially in detecting the exact and precise Author: Hajer Cheikhrouhou.

Polysemy (/ p ə ˈ l ɪ s ɪ m i / or / ˈ p ɒ l ɪ s iː m i /; from Greek: πολύ- polý- "many" and σῆμα, sêma, "sign") is the capacity for a word or phrase to have multiple meanings, usually related by contiguity of meaning within a semantic my is thus distinct from homonymy—or homophony—which is an accidental similarity between two words (such as bear the.

About fifty years ago, Stephen Ullmann wrote that polysemy is 'the pivot of semantic analysis'. Fifty years on, polysemy has become one of the hottest topics in linguistics and in the cognitive sciences at large.

The book deals with the topic from a wide variety of viewpoints. The cognitive approach is supplemented and supported by diachronic, psycholinguistic, developmental, comparative, and. Polysemy is an aspect of semantic ambiguity that concerns the multiplicity of word meanings. For a commonplace example, consider the meaning of the adjective good in the following sentences: 1.

Polysemy is the association of one word with two or more distinct meanings, and a polyseme is a word or phrase with multiple meanings. The word "polysemy" comes from the Greek for "many signs." The adjective forms of the word include polysemous or polysemic.

In contrast, a one-to-one match between a word and a meaning is called "monosemy." In Author: Richard Nordquist.

There is every reason to believe that the existence and properties of polysemy follow directly from these characteristics of human cognition. /88/$Elsevier Science Publishers B.V. (North-Holland) P. Deane / Polysemy and cognition There are three problems to be addressed in an adequate theory of polysemy: sense Cited by: "[This] book gives a very good overall picture of current issues in polysemy and of the diverse ways of approaching the topic.

It should therefore hold an important place on the shelves of any researcher in the fields of lexical semantics and word sense disambiguation, and will certainly be valued by many of our graduate students."--Format: Hardcover. Abstract. Semantic processing of visually presented words can be identified both on behavioral and neurophysiological evidence.

One of the major discoveries of the last decades is the demonstration that these signatures of semantic processing, initially observed for consciously perceived words, can also be detected for masked words inaccessible to conscious by: 8.

To construct a database of practical size, a considerable overhead for manual sense disambiguation (overhead for supervision) is required. Jun'ichi Tsujii, Automatic recognition of verbal polysemy, Proceedings of the 15th conference Cited by:   Polysemy is derived from Greek roots that mean "multiple signs".

A polysemic word has several meanings, each of them (usually) distinct and independent of each other.

Ambiguity is basically a problem nailing down the meaning in the first place. and derivational morphology. Many cases of conventional nominal metonymy, such as those introduced above, can be analysed in these terms. In section 2 we describe the lexical representation language that we have developed to represent basic lexical entries and characterize systematic lexical processes.

Homonymy and Polysemy In semantic analysis, the theoretical distinction between homonymy and polysemy creates a problem that has captivated the attention of many linguists.

Polysemy (polly-seamus in Latin) is defined roughly as the existence of one lexeme with many related meanings. The fact that polysemy is a property of. Polysemy the existence of more than one meaning for a given word, that is, the capability of a word to convey different information about objects and phenomena of extralinguistic reality.
