Kyuseva, Maria, Elena Parina and Daria Ryzhova 2022 Chapter 2. Methodology at work: Semantic fields sharp and bluntThe Typology of Physical Qualities, Rakhilina, Ekaterina, Tatiana Reznikova and Daria Ryzhova (eds.), pp. 29–56 | Chapter
The chapter illustrates the frame-based methodology of lexical typological analysis through the comparison of the qualities sharp and blunt in 21 languages. We show that these qualities tend to be asymmetrical, with bluntness being negatively defined through sharpness. The two main oppositions… read more
Ryzhova, Daria and Denis Paperno 2022 Chapter 11. Constructing a typological questionnaire with distributional semantic modelsThe Typology of Physical Qualities, Rakhilina, Ekaterina, Tatiana Reznikova and Daria Ryzhova (eds.), pp. 309–328 | Chapter
The paper presents a methodology for automatic construction of lexical typological questionnaires for qualitative semantic domains (e.g. sharp, straight, thick, or smooth). Our algorithm is based on data from a monolingual corpus; it constructs a list of collocations for the corresponding… read more
Ryzhova, Daria, Ekaterina Rakhilina and Liliya Kholkina 2019 Chapter 10. Approaching perceptual qualities: The case of heavyPerception Metaphors, Speed, Laura J., Carolyn O'Meara, Lila San Roque and Asifa Majid (eds.), pp. 185–208 | Chapter

We demonstrate that the semantics of this concept is heterogeneous; lexemes of this field can be used in situations of at least three types: Lifting, Shifting and Weighing. These situations are… read more

For each of them we describe the meanings it can have, assign to each meaning a corresponding taxonomic class,… read more
