3/ PRESUPPOSED MEANING • It arises from the restrictions on what other words or phrases we expect to see around a particular lexical unit • SELECTIONAL RESTRICTIONS (Limitations on what words can appear with others, related to propositional meaning) • COLLOCATIONAL RESTRICTIONS (Semantically arbritrary limitations which do not follow logically from the propositional meaning) 4/ EVOKED MEANING • It arises from variation in when and where a word of phrase is expected to be used. It depends on: • DIALECT ? Geographical • REGISTER ? Field (what the text is about) ? Tenor (relationship between the people taking part in the discourse) ? Mode (role the language plays and its medium of transmission) • Many-layered nature of meaning • These meanings are always combined • All these layers of meaning are expressed differently in different languages HYPERONYM (superordinate) vs. HYPONYM SYNONYM ANTONYM POLYSEMY FALSE FRIENDS (NON)EQUIVALENCE AT WORD LEVEL 1- Culture-specific concepts
