Diversifying Procedural Discourse by Kay Wikberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the main characteristics of procedural discourse are well known, less is known about its various subtypes. Most of the data for the present paper are taken from Category E (skills, trades, and hobbies) in the Brown and LOB corpora, supplemented with examples from computer manuals and a manual for drivers. Following a survey of previous research on procedural discourse, a formulaic definition of procedural discourse is offered: X PRESCRIBE HOW Y DO Z, where X is the knowledgeable text producer, Y the ignorant addressee, and DO Z a complex act. It is shown that variation in text type is largely due to the nature of this macro-act and the degree of directness/indirectness that the text producer adopts toward the reader. (Author/JP)
Lexical Semantics and Its Application to Second and Foreign Language Vocabulary Learning and Teaching by Kay Wikberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lexical semantics and contrastive lexical semantics can serve as a background discipline to describe and, to some extent, to explain errors in interlanguage. Two developments in lexical semantics that are relevant in this area are the description of sense-relationships and componential analysis. Contrastive lexical semantics involves mapping the meanings of second language items onto those of equivalent items in the native language, and more broadly, comparing, in lexical terms, the ways the two languages organize perception of the world. Contrastive lexical semantics is essential for understanding some aspects of lexical difficulty. Knowledge in these areas can give insight into the ways a second language learner semanticizes, presents, and selects vocabulary, the ways in which vocabulary is structured, the sorting out of meanings in closely-knit semantic fields, the relatedness of lexical items from different semantic fields, and the factors affecting word association, all of which relate in some way to the development of interlanguage. These are factors that must be kept in mind when one is designing materials and techniques for teaching and learning a second language. (Mse)
Some Critical Observations on Present-Day English Lexicology by Kay Wikberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some aspects of the field of lexicology in general, and of English lexicology in particular, are examined in light of current linguistic theory. Definitions of lexicology, its role in linguistics, the concept and nature of lexical competence, the relationship of grammar and lexicon, and the process of lexicalization are reviewed. Conversion and compounding are looked at as examples of word-formation processes, and the quality of the corpora of lexical research is discussed. The analysis concludes that in English studies, lexicology has touched the areas of the history of vocabulary, dialect research, derivational morphology, word-formation lexicography, and stylistics, and while it cannot be viewed as an autonomous subdivision of linguistics, it is a legitimate field of study alongside grammar.
