Entrenchment in Usage-based Theories

What Corpus Data Do and Do Not Reveal About the Mind

eBook - 2012
Rate this:
This book explores the usage-based claim that high usage frequency leads to the entrenchment of complex words in the minds of language users. To probe the correlation between corpus-extracted usage data and mental entrenchment, the author operationalises entrenchment in Gestalt psychological terms and conducts a series of behavioural and neuroimaging experiments.
