The adaptive nature of ``meaning as understanding''

Gábor Győri
2005 Acta Linguistica Hungarica  
In the paper I discuss semantic change as a cognitive adaptation process which flexibly adjusts the culturally shared conceptual category system of a language to changing conditions in the environment.  ...  In this light the cognitive function of the mental machinery of conceptualization and imagery -as the basis of meaning as understanding -is the adaptive construal of phenomena.  ...  The cognitive function of language requires that language as a social cognitive model be adjusted to these changes.  ...
