The Mandel Scholion Research Group "Historical Linguistics and Formal Semantics“

Organized by: Elitzur Bar-Asher Siegal, Nora Boneh, Eitan Grossman, Aynat Rubinstein

The group jointly explores in a systematic manner how studies in historical linguistics and in semantics can contribute to one another, in an attempt to draw conclusions about the properties of a variety of semantic categories (e.g. negation, temporality, modality), their universality, and the mechanisms underlying recurring shifts in meanings over time, or paths of semantic change, within these categories.
