Contributor(s): Goddard, Cliff  (author)
Publication Date: 2004

Abstract: The chapter adopts the standpoint of the Natural Semantic Metalanguage (NSM) theory, originated by Anna Wierzbicka (1972, 1980, 1988, 1992, 1996). It outlines how semantic primes have been identified within and across languages, over several decades of empirical research, and how they can be used as a tool in lexical and grammatical typology and contrastive linguistics.
