    Re: help pleas

    Hi,

    If you give me your e-mail adress, I can send you some handouts which explain ( in a very accessible way, I believe) various types of semantic change and what triggers it. I guess it's a good thing to start with, since as you say yourself, you're a beginner and reading some serious "scientific stuff" may be quite a challenge for you;)

    Still, if you are really interested in some books , here are two I can recommend :



    The logical-rhetorical classification of semantic changes / Raphael Sappan.


    Semantic change in English : a study of evaluative developments in the domain of humans / Grzegorz A. Kleparski.
