Salvadori, Justine, Rossella Varvara and Richard Huyghe 2024 Chapter 4. Measuring affix rivalry as a gradient relationshipCompetition in Word-Formation, Bagasheva, Alexandra, Akiko Nagano and Vincent Renner (eds.), pp. 104–138 | Chapter
In many languages, affixes can be used to derive words with the same semantic types and can therefore compete in word formation. This paper discusses how to quantitatively assess the competition between derivational affixes based on their semantic similarity. Two possible measures of affix… read more
Lombard, Alizée, Richard Huyghe, Lucie Barque and Doriane Gras 2023 Regular polysemy and novel word-sense identificationThe Mental Lexicon 18:1, pp. 94–119 | Article
This study examines speakers’ intuitions about novel word senses created through regular polysemy patterns. We investigate the effect of scalar regularity and lexical figure (metaphor vs. metonymy) on the identification of novel word senses, based on a detection experiment. It is shown that the… read more
Lombard, Alizée, Marine Wauquier, Cécile Fabre, Nabil Hathout, Lydia-Mai Ho-Dac and Richard Huyghe 2022 Evaluating morphosemantic demotivation through experimental and distributional methodsLingvisticæ Investigationes 45:1, pp. 83–115 | Article
The lexicalization of morphologically complex words, i.e. their inclusion in the lexicon, can involve a loss of semantic compositionality. Such a phenomenon, called demotivation, has been overlooked in both morphological and lexical studies, notably regarding its gradual nature. This paper… read more

Ser and estar are used to express respectively inherent or episodic properties. As a consequence, spatial location is denoted… read more
This paper deals with the spatial features of event-denoting nouns [EvNs], which are often overlooked in the linguistic literature on space. EvNs can refer to spatial entities, as they can be used as trajectors in localization sentences (Il y a une cérémonie dans l’église ‘There is a ceremony in… read more
