Semantic prosody and semantic preference

Abstract

Ever since their recent arrival on the scene of lexical grammar, the concepts of semantic prosody and semantic preference have been fraught with complications. In this paper I examine the two related concepts, in the light of recent work by Hoey (2005). Each section begins with a definition, attempt a review of relevant current positions and then describe a number of corpus-based experiments I conducted to throw light on the two phenomena. Finally, I will try to draw some conclusions about the relationship between them.
