TitleParadigms of Semantic Derivation for Russian Verbs of Sounding
AbstractModern methods of semantic analysis require that a polysemous word be divided into several separate lexemes - each with its own independently defined meaning. This division has an undesired consequence - the unity of a word, clearly felt by the speakers of language, is destroyed, which fact makes this model of lexicon obviously defective. In our paper an effective way of reestablishing the semantic unity of a word is proposed. We present an inventory of semantic derivation rules that transform one meaning of a polysemous word into another. Hence the notion of a paradigm of semantic derivation (and of systematic polysemy). The treatment of systematic polysemy in the Semantic Database for Russian verbs is outlined.
